This afternoon the Reedy Creek Fire responded to a small fire at the Norway pavilion at Walt Disney World’s Epcot Resort, Disney officials said.
The small fire broke out in the construction area of the new “Frozen” attraction at Epcot’s Norway Pavilion.
For a short time the entrance to the Norway pavilion was closed
Disney officials said the fire ignited in the back of the pavilion and was extinguished.
A Walt Disney World spokesperson said, a fire was reported in the construction area behind the Norway pavilion. Out of an abundance of caution, guests were evacuated from the attraction, the gift shop and the restaurant. They have since been allowed to return.
Thankfully there were no injuries or major damage reported and normal park operations have resumed.
Orlando’s News 6 helicopter Sky 6 flew over the park and spotted fire trucks on scene.
EPCOT plans on opening the “Frozen” attraction sometime in late 2016.
