    Fire at Islands of Adventure

    Apparently a fire broke out at Dudley Do Right's at IOA today.

    No injuries and no reason yet, but Toon Lagoon has been evacuated.

    Fire reported at Islands of Adventure at Universal Orlando

    The fire was in the Ripsaw Falls ride. Scary! Kind of ironic though... a fire at a water ride.

    Just heard about this, what terrible news. I just hope that it won't be too hard to get everything back together.

    Scary photos. The news I've been hearing is a lot better than it could have been, though.

    Fire at Universal Orlando: Fire at Dudley Do-Right's Ripsaw Falls ride causes partial evacuation at Islands of Adventure. - OrlandoSentinel.com

    The smoky, two-alarm blaze erupted on the roof of an area through which cars that look like logs carry passengers, said Orlando Deputy Fire Chief Greg Hoggatt. It grew quickly.

    "That type of material puts out a lot of black smoke," he said.

    Forty firefighters, including some from Orange County Fire Rescue, were called to the scene. The fire was tamed in about half an hour and extinguished in an hour, Hoggatt said. A few guests were checked at the park first-aid room, but nobody required hospitalization. No damage estimates were available, park spokesman Tom Schroder said.

    This is SO crazy! I was dreaming about this ride last night. I've never been to IOA but I've always been curious about Ripsaw. Woke up this morning and saw the news about the attraction... IT BLEW MY MIND!
