All she wanted to do was make some fish sticks for her daughter. Actress Jessica Alba has almost burned down the hotel she was staying in, the People magazine reports.

Jessica Alba, in town for the Tribeca Film Festival premiere of her new movie, “The Killer Inside Me,” was attempting to heat up some fish sticks at 5:30 p.m. Tuesday — but she couldn’t figure out how to work the oven.

“She ended up almost causing a fire in her room. Fire alarms ended up going off throughout the hotel. The smoke was so bad that fire trucks had to come. The other guests in the hotel were pretty pissed,” according to the source at the hotel.

But Alba’s rep tells People Magazine that there was no fire. “They were preparing Honor’s dinner,” her rep, Brad Cafarelli, said. “[There was] no fire – just some smoke that unfortunately set off the alarm.”

Later in the evening, Jessica Alba made quite a show of bidding husband Cash Warren a proper farewell before heading to Avenue for the premiere’s after-party, the NY Post reports.

“When the car door opened, she sat on his lap making out with him for a minute in front of paparazzi and fans,” says another spy. “She only stopped when a friend pried her away.”

Inside the club, Alba’s co-star, Kate Hudson, was doing everything she could to downplay reports that she got breast implants. “She was wearing a baggy printed dress, and noticeably angled herself away from photographers,” says our spy. “She briefly said hi to Jessica and [co-star] Casey Affleck before leaving in an oversized trench coat.”

In other Tribeca Film Festival 2010 news, former Interview editor Glenn O’Brien was asked to move his seat so that Alicia Keys could sit next to boyfriend Swizz Beatz at the Nowness-hosted premiere of “Jean-Michel Basquiat: The Radiant Child” at MoMA. Julian Schnabel, Chris Rock, Jeffrey Deitch, Tommy Hilfiger, Fab 5 Freddy and Annie Leibovitz were also there.
