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

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

The only injury is to the dragon float itself.

Maleficent's dragon involved in the Festival of Fantasy parade is the float that caught on fire.

The fire was quickly extinguished and the area clear, a Disney World spokesperson told the Orlando Sentinel.

According to the police, the victim later found out that the "scientist" was working with the accused, and was being paid ₹20,000. They told the businessmen that he would be able to make a profit by selling the item to the space agency.

Instead of breathing fire, a dragon float in the Festival of Fantasy Parade inside Magic Kingdom caught fire. An employee is usually stationed inside the mechanical dragon, sitting near the base of the neck, but no one was injured in the incident. Videos from the scene show flames and plumes of black smoke rising from the robotic dragon's head. Another cast member brings up the rear, while additional costumed workers - including one portraying Prince Phillip battling the beast - travel by foot.

"Maleficent" was also a live-action film released by Disney in 2014 and starred Angelina Jolie as the vengeful title character and Elle Fanning as her nemesis, Aurora. Lots of playground traffic filmed and shot images of the drag on - representing the "Sleeping Beauty" personality Maleficent - bobbing its burning mind up and down.

Disney is the parent company of ABC News.
