Recently, a fire caused the Seven Dwarves Mine Train ride at Disney World to have to shut down temporarily, according to the Inquisitr.
Embers from the Magic Kingdom fireworks display, a nightly event that takes place near the Seven Dwarves ride, started the fire. Reportedly, the embers landing on one of the ride’s buildings is what lit the blaze, which began around 10 p.m.
Fortunately, no one was hurt in the fire, which was extinguished relatively quickly, and the ride was reopened by midnight.
The fire is just the latest incident to strike Disney in the last few years. Others include:
- Children witnessing their father’s death and mother’s disfigurement when the ropes anchoring the Columbia, a Disney ship, broke loose and a metal cleat attached to them struck people on a dock nearby.
- A 12-year-old losing four of his fingers on the Pirates of the Caribbean ride.
- A man losing part of his fingers on the Pirates of the Caribbean ride.
