Small Fire Shuts Epcot for the Day

July 18, 2002|From Associated Press

ORLANDO, Fla. — A smoky electrical fire early Wednesday kept Epcot at Walt Disney World closed for the day. The theme park was expected to reopen today.

There were no injuries in the 3 a.m. EDT fire in an electrical generation building at the popular theme park. The park wasn't open at the time.

The fire, which took 10 minutes to extinguish, caused little damage but caused power outages at Epcot, the Caribbean Beach Club and Disney Vacation Club.

Power was restored to the other two resorts, although air conditioning at the vacation club remained out.
