A small fire at Florida’s Epcot forced an evacuation on the Norway pavilion Wednesday.A small fire broke out inside Walt Disney World’s Epcot Wednesday at the construction site of theme park’s up-and-coming “Frozen” ride on the Norway pavilion.

No visitors to the Florida park were near the construction site, but the rest of the pavilion was evacuated as officials made sure all of the flames were put out.

Guests were allowed to return later Wednesday afternoon, WESH reported.

No one was injured in the fire, the cause of which has not been determined.

Disney announced plans in June to add the “Frozen Ever After” attraction to its worldly park. Guests will ride logs through the fictional land of Arendelle, a forever-cold country thanks to Queen Elsa’s ice-creating powers.

Epcot attractions are typically dedicated to real countries — such as Mexico, China and Norway — and Disney executives promised the ride will draw plenty of influence from Scandinavian culture. It is set to open in 2016.
