(I've never visited Disneyland Resort, Tokyo Disney Resort, Disneyland Resort Paris, nor Hong Kong Disneyland Resort, so don't be fooled when I pretend to know what I'm talking about. [But I'm pretty good with the information, if I do say so myself. And you can hit me all you want with Walt Disney World.])
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!
