The audience can be heard gasping after the dragon releases a big burst of fire at one point during the show. Following this, cast members working for Disney shout for everyone to "clear the area."
According to a statement released by Disney, park guests were instructed to leave several neighboring attractions because of the heavy smoke.
It went on to say that the reason for the fire is still being investigated, and that "out of an abundance of caution," identical fire effects will be turned off at all of the company's theme parks located in different parts of the world for the time being.
