The Orlando Sentinel reports, Reedy Creek Fire responded after they received an early evening call about an electrical fire on a junction box outside the castle.

Once firefighters arrived, they saw a tree on fire next to the structure. One person suffered minor injuries and was treated at the scene after accidentally inhaling chemicals from a fire extinguisher, fire officials said.
