ORLANDO, Fla., Feb. 14 (UPI) --
The roof of a ride at Walt Disney World in Orlando, Fla., was burned after sparks from fireworks started a small blaze, a spokesman for the theme park says.
A 5-foot section of the roof of the Journey of the Little Mermaid ride was damaged, the Orlando Sentinel reported Thursday.
The Reedy Creek Fire Department used a fire extinguisher to put out the flames.
No one was hurt when sparks ignited artificial foliage on the ride, WFTS-TV, Tampa, reported.
The ride remained open.
