Smoke triggers evacuation at Disney World's Space Ship Earth Ride

A spokesman with Reedy Creek Fire Rescue confirmed that a ride at Walt Disney World’s Epcot theme park was evacuated due to an electrical short that prompted a fire alarm.

Around 4 p.m. Monday afternoon, attendants at the iconic Spaceship Earth saw smoke emanating from an area where riders exit the attraction’s continuous-loading track. Cast members stopped the ride and asked guests to leave the building. They also set off an extinguisher as a precaution.

Maintenance workers were already making repairs by the time firefighters arrived,m according to the Reedy Creek spokesman. There were no injuries to guests or employees and we are told the ride has resumed operations.
