“Attractions near the island were safely cleared of any visitors due to smoke and wind, and the cause of the fire is still under investigation at this time.” According to the Anaheim Fire Department, no injuries were recorded, according to KABC. Visitors to the theme park recorded videos of the 45-foot-tall dragon’s face on fire before it spread to the rest of its body.
