Original story below:
A fire broke out on the Seven Dwarfs Mine Train ride at Walt Disney World in Orlando, Florida. Pictures on social media showed fire trucks responding to the scene.
The fire was reported around 10:20 p.m EDT, and the ride was evacuated. Firefighters extinguished the blaze within minutes.
There were no reports of injuries, the Orlando Sentinel reported.
Officials from the Reedy Creek Fire Department told WKMG, Orlando, the fire may have started when fallout from fireworks landed on top of the ride and ignited some decorative materials outside the structure.
Theme park blog Behind The Thrills reported the roof of the Little Mermaid ride caught fire last year after sparks from fireworks ignited.
Small fire at Seven Dwarfs Mine Train. Seems like fireworks fallout. Nothing too serious. Think it's already out. pic.twitter.com/UYL1k0EGmX
