Fire breaks out at Keansburg Amusement Park

Posted: Updated:

Operations at the Keansburg Amusement Park are mostly back to normal after a fire broke out on one of the park's rides.



It appears electrical problems were the cause of the fire on the Gravitron. Park officials say that the fire started while the ride was closed, and they were waiting for a mechanic to come to make repairs.



Large plumes of black smoke could be seen from all over the park due to the fire. No one was on the ride at the time of the fire.



The fire was quickly put out and did not spread to any other rides. There were no reported injuries.



The amusement park stayed open during the fire.
