JAMES CITY CO, Va. – A small fire broke out on the roof of the Escape from Pompeii water ride in Italy village Saturday evening.

The ride was not operating at the time the fire started and no guests were in the area, according to authorities.

The James City County Fire Department responded immediately and the fire was extinguished without incident.

A Busch Gardens representative said the ride will be closed Sunday and there is not a date for when it will reopen.
