Malificent Dragon Float

Fire-breathing dragon burns as punters watch on at Orlando's Disney World

A dragon float was supposed to be breathing fire, but the dragon's head ended up engulfed in flames.

According to The Orlando Sentinel, the attraction is Maleficent's dragon and part of the Magic Kingdom's daily Festival of Fantasy parade located in Liberty Square.

Video of the fiery dragon head shows its mechanical mouth and neck still operating as workers tried to put out the flames.

Local firefighters responded to the fire, but it had already been extinguished by the time they arrived. No one was injured in the incident, a Disney World spokesperson said. The dragon, which has a steampunk-looking design, was then brought backstage with smokes still blowing out of its head.
