System.OutOfMemoryException on file download

have an ashx handler with the following code. The idea is to hide the path of the file and prompt a download

   context.Response.Clear();
       context.Response.AddHeader("Content-Disposition", "attachment; filename=" + fileName);
       context.Response.AddHeader("Content-Length", file.Length.ToString());
       context.Response.ContentType = "application/octet-stream";
       context.Response.WriteFile(file.FullName);

This works fine for some files however on others i get

Exception of type 'System.OutOfMemoryException' was thrown. Should wrap the whole thing in a using statement. What should it implement?
