ALBANY, GA (WALB) - In between calls of food burning on stoves, Albany firefighters are taking time to enjoy Thanksgiving with their second family.

We found a group of firemen returning from a call of overcooked food. They had several of those calls early this morning and expect more as the day progresses.

Capt. Daniel Potter warns, if you're going to cook a Thanksgiving feast, make sure it doesn't turn into a fire. He said, "If you're going to be cooking, pay attention to it and there's always a few people doing the odd stuff, like frying a turkey. Make sure you know what you're doing, read the instructions well, make sure it's thawed, don't have too much oil in there. Just, be careful."

During down time, Capt. Potter and others were working on cooking their own meal, complete with a smoked turkey, sweet potatoes and banana pudding for dessert.
