Where there’s smoke, there might not always be fire — but rather some fiery-hot Buffalo wings.

Firefighters reporting to a call about a fire at a restaurant on Saturday night discovered that the smoke reported by a passerby wasn’t the result of a fire, but rather 10,000 chicken wings the eatery’s staff was preparing for Super Bowl orders the next day.

Workers at Ronni’s Pizza in Clemmons, N.C., told FOX 8 in Greensboro that a motorist called the fire department after seeing a plume of smoke coming from the restaurant on Feb. 6.

In a Facebook post, the Lewisville Fire Department later clarified that, no, the restaurant wasn’t actually on fire. 

“While it looked bad when we got there, turns out their hardworking staff were just preparing roughly 10,000 chicken wings for Super Bowl Sunday.”

“We are very fortunate that this was the outcome,” the fire department added. “Everyone be safe and enjoy the big game!”
