A dragon float caught on fire today at Walt Disney World

During a parade at Walt Disney World, the head of a mechanical dragon float caught on fire.

The Maleficent dragon, which had a functioning fire feature, went up in flames during this afternoon's Festival of Fantasy parade at Magic Kingdom.

As you can see, the scene was heavily documented on social media.

According to reports, the fire was extinguished without incident and no one was injured ... except for the float.

We've reached out to Disney for comment and will update the story when more information is available.
