Sound waves control fire

I know you want to get right to the video and it is truly amazing.  In this video Nigel Standford doesn’t set out to answer the question of whether sound can extinguish fire, but after watching this impressive video and seeing the effects that sounds waves had on fire (3:30 towards the end when the piano kicks in), I began to wonder could sound be the answer to extinguishing fire? And if so, could we be on the verge of a solution to extinguishing massive wildfires without wasting water or injuring firefighters? There’s a lot of questions to be answered and if anyone would like to help me explore the possibilities of sound as an extinguishing agent leave me a comment below.
