Saturday night saw a small fire erupt at Disneyland in Anaheim that was quickly extinguished, The Associated Press reported via ABC News.
The fire started in a backstage section of the “It’s a Small World” attraction in some foliage. The flames were not inside the building. No one was hurt, and there was no damage to the ride.
ABC7 Los Angeles said that Disneyland fire crews responded and made short work of the fire, extinguished the blaze by by 9:48 p.m. The ride has since reopened.
Christopher Lastrapes and his wife were queued up for "Mr. Toad's Wild Ride" when the blaze erupted, and park employees began to clear guests out of the area.
Lastrapes told the Orange County Register that he first thought there was a medical emergency.
The cause is under investigation and theme park spokeswoman Suzi Brown said that the fire happened around the same time as a fireworks display.
This wouldn’t be the first time fireworks have started a blaze at a Disney park. Travelpulse reported about a fireworks display igniting landscaping at Disney World's Seven Dwarfs Mine Train attraction in November.
