But, have you ever heard of a barn full of chemicals catching on fire near the parks? Well, it’s happening right now, and it’s affecting the most magical place on Earth.

It took about 25 minutes for the flames to be diminished, and while no one was injured, there is now very poor air quality being noticed in Disney World.

Additionally, there are also often controlled burns near Disney World, which can also affect air quality. If you plan to be in the parks this evening, keep this in mind if you’re sensitive to smoke and less-than-ideal air quality. Please be sure to keep yourself safe, and head indoors for filtered air whenever needed. As always, stay tuned to AllEars for the latest news.
