Dragon float in Disney's Festival of Fantasy Parade catches fire

Malificent Dragon Float

A Walt Disney World spokesperson confirmed no guests or cast members were injured.

A dragon float from the movie Maleficent caught fire at Disney World's Magic Kingdom Friday afternoon.

Videos of the incident show that the float was still operational even as it was on fire, with its mechanical head rising and falling as workers tried to put out the blaze with fire extinguishers.

Typically, the giant dragon float from the movie "Sleeping Beauty" shoots smoke from its nostrils and fire from its mouth in a great pyrotechnic display. There were no injuries to employees or visitors, it was reported.

The Festival of Fantasy parade debuted four years ago.

'Walmart can infuse $3 bn in Flipkart'
The bargain today awaits clearance out of India's anti trust regulator and is predicted to close later this year. In case, SoftBank decides not to sell, Walmart would be left with about 55 per cent of Flipkart .

The steampunk-style dragon normally breathes fire as part of the show, but something malfunctioned and the entire head of the metal beast went up in flames.

It happened during the Magic Kingdom's daily Festival of Fantasy parade.

Here's the procession with the fire-breathing dragon functioning properly.

No visitors or employees were hurt, and the local fire service is investigating the cause.
