The Red Queen didn't try to kill the virus with the fire suppression gas and sprinkler system. She tried to stop the virus outbreak by stopping it's infection vector, Infected Humans and Animals. She, being the main computer for the Hive, knew exactly how the t-Virus acts. Umbrella has been experimenting on it in the Hive for a long time. The reviving of the dead was already known. It's viable airborne infection time is well known. The t-Virus was being designed as a weapon and it being airborne for any large amount of time would make it incredibly unwieldy as a weapon. The primary weaponized vector was always the undead, not the initial airborne vector. This is why she decapitates the guy trying to escape in the elevator, drowns the ones locked up, and gasses the rest. She knew she couldn't kill the virus, she said that outright. She could only contain it, and the infected, at any cost. She intentionally gassed and killed all the humans, not a side effect.

Earlier in the script, showing it it was always to kill the infected. Airborne infection was never a concern:

The Screenplay, an early draft of the film says as much. She didn't try to kill the virus. She killed and isolated the hosts:

TWELVE: Why kill everyone in the Hive?
RED QUEEN: Because there was a leak. T—3 escaped an unplanned pattern of infection began. Once the virus was loose, I couldn’t allow anyone to leave the Hive. So I took the appropriate action.
SPENCE: You butchered them.
RED QUEEN: If one infected human had escaped from the Hive...

A green holographic projection springs up in front of the Box. It’s a map of the USA. A tiny pin prick of red appears in the map.
RED QUEEN (CONT’D): ...the infection would have spread to cover the United States within 13 days.

Earlier in the script, showing it it was always to kill the infected. Airborne infection was never a concern:

The Medic uses a hand held device to sample the air.
MEDIC: Halon content in the air is high. That must be how she killed then.
ONE (James Shade): Do we need masks?
MEDIC: No, it’s breathable now.

Alice is only infected after being captured at the end, by Umbrella scientists as an experiment. The whole Raccoon City outbreak (Resident Evil: Apocalypse) was caused by these same scientists ordering the Hive to be reopened, releasing the zombies and lickers stuck inside.
