A small fire broke out during tonight’s performance of Harmonious at Epcot. The fire started near some bushes by World Showcase Lagoon and the flames quickly grew near onlooking guests.
Videos and photos of the fire shows it grew rapidly before being extinguished.

Thankfully, cast members in the area were able to put out the fire. Fire crews stationed in a boat reportedly doused the flames and additional cast members assisted with fire extinguishers.

It sounds like a stray shell or some fireworks debris set the landscape on fire. This is a somewhat regular occurrence at Walt Disney World, with one of the most recent involving fire trucks traveling down Main Street U.S.A. at the Magic Kingdom.
