LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. (WESH) — A fire near Cinderella Castle sprouted from a tree around 6:45 p.m. Tuesday at Walt Disney World’s Magic Kingdom, according to Reedy Creek fire officials.
Fire officials say the fire could have been caused by debris from the classic fireworks show set off at the castle.
The fire department said Cinderella Castle was evacuated, along with surrounding areas.
In a “very unusual occurrence,” Walt Disney World staff escorted the first responder trucks down Main Street, said Reedy Creek Fire Association president Jon Shirey.
No one was hurt in the incident except for one person who accidentally inhaled the chemicals from a chemical fire extinguisher used by the fire department, Shirey said. That person was treated on the scene.
A representative from Walt Disney World described the fire as small. Firefighters quickly extinguished the flames, according to Disney.
