Colossus is down. A portion of one of America’s most iconic roller coasters collapsed on Monday at Six Flags Magic Mountain, according to local news channel KTLA5.
The Los Angeles County Fire Department was summoned to the amusement park in Santa Clarita, Calif., at 1:30 p.m. to tackle a fire that reportedly broke out while the ride — closed for renovation three weeks ago — was being worked on.
“There are no injuries and the fire is contained,” Six Flags said in a statement. “Colossus is currently undergoing a transformation and has been closed since Aug. 17.”
The wooden roller coaster was shuttered after 36 years and is set to be replaced with a hybrid ride called Twisted Colossus.
The park was closed Monday and the cause of the fire is still being investigated.
