Lincoln Fire and Rescue was called to Dickie's Barbecue near 27th and Cornhusker just after 2:00 p.m. after reports of heavy smoke. LFR says an employee called the department after noticing an unusual amount of smoke coming from the smoker and the roof.

LFR says something clogged the vent.

"The residual heat that's inside the machine is holding that heat in more and igniting everything once we get it put out," Capt. Steve Dolezal said. "We're trying to col that down."

Everyone was safely evacuated and Capt. Dolezal says the fire was under control within an hour.
