Fire-breathing dragon float catches fire at Disney World

Disney officials confirmed the dragon float is supposed to shoot a small flame from its nose, but this time it caught the rest of the dragon's head on fire.

The Orlando Sentinel reported a Disney World spokeswoman said the fire was extinguished quickly, and the area cleared.

The Festival of Fantasy parade crowd at Walt Disney World's The Magic Kingdom in Orlando, FL on May 11 got an unbelievable scare when a dragon float suddenly caught fire and erupted in huge smoky flames. Videos from the scene show flames and plumes of black smoke rising from the robotic dragon's head.

The incident appeared to happen in the Liberty Square section of the park.

In the usual performance of the parade, the dragon's head shoots a blast of fire from its nose, timed to the parade's score.

A Disney employee rushed over with a fire extinguisher and within minutes the fire was out.

The float was part of the theme park's "Festival of Fantasy". "Parade closed and the fire was promptly put out".

The spokeswoman said the company was still in the process of figuring out what went wrong.
