A fire broke out at Disneyland in California on Saturday night when a large animatronic dragon was completely engulfed in flames during the popular «Fantasmic!» show, police said.
Anaheim Fire and Rescue personnel were dispatched to the scene around 11 p.m. to assist the Disneyland Fire Department in putting out the fire on Tom Sawyer Island.
Video circulating on social media shows the giant Disneyland prop ablaze as park-goers look on.
Disneyland cast members evacuated the area and the fire was quickly extinguished, according to Anaheim Police Sgt. John McClintock.
Several Disneyland cast members were treated for possible smoke inhalation and released. There were no guests or firefighters injured.
Arson investigators responded to the scene to investigate the cause of the fire, which has not been determined at this time, McClintock said.
«Fantastic!» is a 29-minute nightly extravaganza featuring characters from several popular Disney movies, «including Maleficent in the form of a towering 40-foot-tall dragon,» according to Disney World’s website.
