NC firefighters raced to a restaurant reported to be in flames only to find out that the only things hot were the 10,000 wings they were preparing for the Super Bowl.

The only thing more 'Merica than having someone think your restaurant is on fire because you're preparing 10,000 wings for the Super Bowl would be a cowboy eating a burger on the Fourth of July while shooting an AR-15 with bald eagles soaring overhead.

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.

It looked pretty bad at first.

Did the restaurant workers provide the firefighters with some free wings for their troubles?

What kind of a country would this be if they hadn't?

"They made sure all was well, we fed them, and got a few laughs and a great picture," the restaurant wrote on social media."

According to an estimate by the National Chicken Council (because of course there is a National Chicken Council), Americans ate 1.42 billion chicken wings for the Super Bowl, a new record.

That's just how we do things here.
