Lisa Vanderpump says a fire did NOT break out at her famous Pump restaurant on Friday, despite an alarming report.

Emergency personnel, including multiple fire trucks and ambulances, rushed to the West Hollywood establishment around 11 a.m. local time. Fortunately, Vanderpump says it was just smoke in the kitchen that set off alarms. “No fire at PUMP thank you tho, some smoke from a broiler overheating,” she tweeted to a concerned fan after a TMZ report spread. “Thank you to the fire department for your quick response.”

In response to TMZ running the story in the first place, Vanderpump wrote to the outlet, “I told you don’t believe the adage where there’s smoke there’s fire…. No fire, chief already left. Go put some other fires out.” The hot spot, which was perhaps extra hotter earlier, has not mentioned the scary incident on any of its own social media pages.

The restaurant will be open for Friday dinner service as usual, beginning at 5 p.m. Some celebrities who are fans include Lady Gaga and Jennifer Lawrence, as Gossip Cop has reported. Pump, of course, is just one of the “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” star’s establishments.

She and husband Ken Todd also own Villa Blanca and Sur. The latter is the locale for Vanderpump’s spinoff show, “Vanderpump Rules.”
