En route at FL410; we were given instructions to hold due to WX at destination. We were flying toward ZZZ when the right engine fire light illuminated. I declared an emergency; we followed the checklist; did a precautionary shutdown; and landed at ZZZ. There was no appearance of a fire. It may have been a faulty indicator. I have not spoken with the mechanic since the plane was inspected.
