A fire broke out at Disneyland in Anaheim on Saturday night, but was quickly extinguished, a spokeswoman for the theme park said.

The flames were reported about 9:20 p.m. in a back stage area near the It’s a Small World attraction, said the spokeswoman, Suzi Brown. The fire was not inside the building.

The small blaze was possibly sparked by a fireworks show that usually takes place at 9:25 p.m., she said. The show may have started earlier due to the possibility of rain.

No one was hurt, Brown said.

Anaheim and Disneyland fire personnel responded to the fire.

Posts on social media, including Instagram and Twitter, showed flames near the attraction.

The theme parked hoped to reopen It's a Small World late Saturday night. Disneyland was scheduled to remain open until midnight.
