RE: Fire Suppression

I fully understand the reason for recommending "auto close vent doors (shutters)" but if the engine continues to run, with vents opened/closed, isn't the engine sucking in a great amount of fire suppression chemical and what damage to the engine, if any, can be caused by this?

How* many of the Forum's members have "auto close shutters" or fire suppression systems

on their boats. I have neither. ( Just 3 fire extinguishers.)
