A blaze broke out following a fireworks display at Disney's Seven Dwarfs Mine Train at Walt Disney World in Florida late Saturday but was quickly extinguished, officials said. Nobody was hurt and there was no damage to the structure, Bo Jones, spokesman for the Reedy Creek Fire Department, said in a statement adding that fake grass had been ablaze.

"We believe fireworks fell from the Magic Kingdom fireworks show and the ash landed at the top of the attraction, catching the fake grass on fire,” he added. "The fire was contained to just the grass and did not get into the building or structure.” The blaze broke about at about 10.30pm ET Saturday.
