A giant mechanical dragon caught on fire Friday during the daily Festival of Fantasy parade at the Magic Kingdom in Orlando, Florida.

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. But a YouTube video shows the dragon’s head first catch fire and then start smoking and then really start blazing with no special effects involved.


A handful of photos and videos posted on social media show just how crazy the whole incident looked to visitors in the kingdom.

Park officials said no one was hurt in the blaze and the fire was extinguished relatively quickly after it started.
