A News 12 report said in part:

"Around 30 people were evacuated from the ride, and no one was injured…

Firefighters from multiple departments raced to the scene to help put out the flames and heavy smoke, that could be seen from all over the park.
Playland officials say they believe the fire initially sparked in the carousel's lighting fixtures. They say there was damage to the roof and water damage to some of the ride's mechanics. None of the horses were damaged."
