February 12, 2008

A ride at Disney’s Animal Kingdom in Lake Buena Vista, Fla., has closed after a small fire broke out Sunday, sending one woman to the hospital with minor injuries.

Disney spokeswoman Andrea Finger says a truck engine at the Kilimanjaro Safari ride caught on fire when an engine hose failed. The blaze was mostly out by the time fire officials arrived.

The unidentified woman was taken to the hospital after complaining of a knee injury when she jumped from a truck. Finger says three other guests have been treated on the scene for minor injuries.

She says Disney officials are inspecting all of the vehicles in the ride.
