According to the Reedy Creek Fire Department, fire crews were called to the attraction at around 5:30 p.m. tonight. The relatively small fire was said to have started in the attic of the attraction and was stopped from spreading to the rest of the attraction by the buildings fire sprinklers. The area around the Adventureland section of the park was briefly evacuated until firefighters were certain that the fire was completely doused. As of 8 p.m. RCFD spokesman Bo Jones said that the Enchanted Tiki Room was closed to park guests as crews worked toward clearing out the excess sprinkler water. The cause of the fire is still under investigation and crews are still working to determine the amount of damage this fire caused to the attraction. It is unclear when it will reopen at this time.
I do think both Disney and Universal deserve a round of applause for the way keeping up safety standards and handeling these situations very well with no guests and employees being injured.
Both local news station WESH and the Orlando Sentinel reported on the fire.Tweet
Its good to see that everybody was safe and proper protocol apparently was followed!
