Probably not.  If you assume they can maintain typical freezer temperature
of -10 °F, that's still only ~80 °F away from ambient temperature. 


Not that it is significant, but you have ignored the "heat of fusion". 
Ice soaks up much more heat in that last thawing degree.

Probably not.  If you assume they can maintain typical freezer temperature
of -10 °F, that's still only ~80 °F away from ambient temperature.  That's
not much of a help when you're trying to cool things heated by flames in
the 1000s of degrees.  Furthermore, if you dumped enough crushed ice so it
wouldn't immediately flash into steam, it would restrict the flow of
water.  The main benefit of using a fire hose is that there's a constant
flow of water to carry the heat away.  (Assuming you can get water to the
heat source.)  You just need to do it long enough to cool everything to
below ignition temp.  That might mean until there is not enough capacity
left in the battery to heat up from a short circuit caused by munched
and/or torn metal

A seemingly good idea.  Perhaps worthy of study by fire fighting people. 
 Two likely problems I see:
1) The logistics difficulty of having ice on hand especially considering 
the rare need for it.
2) Ice COULD be counter productive by blocking water from where it is 
needed.

Not only that, but a battery can provide its own source of ignition. 
Even after being extinguished and totally cooled off, there can still be 
enough voltage and current so a short somewhere can produce enough heat 
to re-ignite it.
