A fire broke out on a 45ft-tall Disneyland dragon during a show in Anaheim, California.

The incident prompted evacuation of Tom Sawyer Island at California resort, but no injuries were reported.

The dragon caught fire during the “Fantasmic” show, causing those in attendance to flee.

Video footage showed the dragon engulfed in flames and cast members were evacuated.

The cause of the fire is being investigated, and the extent of the fire damage is not immediately known.

ABC News reported that guests were informed of the cancellation of the performance due to unforeseen circumstances.
