Embers from fireworks at Magic Kingdom ignited a small fire at Disney World’s latest ride, the Seven Dwarfs Mine Train, on Saturday night.

The fire was quickly put out, and no one was hurt, a Disney spokeswoman said.

The nightly fireworks had just ended when embers landed on the building outside the attraction about 10:30 p.m., igniting the fire, the spokeswoman said.

Passengers on the ride were able to get off safely, and no one was evacuated, she said.

The ride reopened about an hour later.

The Seven Dwarfs Mine Train, a family roller coaster, opened at the Magic Kingdom theme park in May. Lines for the attraction are hours long.
