Should I evacuate/remove my birds?

Hello!
We were cooking dinner, a couple of steaks, outside in a grill. It was windy, the the grill was placed in one of the two garage doors, the other one was shut. In the corner farthest from the grill, my chickens are located for the winter.
The grill caught fire, a grease fire, and pit of some smoke. It’s not a LOT, but enough to make vision near the grill hard, but it didn’t seem to be reaching the chickens, as far as I could see. Of course, it’s smoke, so it is most likely dangerous to them in large amounts. Should I consider moving them from the garage until the smoke clears? Or do you think just the little amount won’t harm them?

If in doubt, get them to fresh air until things clear up. Smoke inhalation is extremely serious in chickens.
Thank you! They were moved last night, into pet taxis in my mud room. The garage aired out, and they are now back inside.
