UPDATED : RYE, N.Y. — Firefighters battled a blaze that broke out on top of the historic carousel while more than two dozen people were on the iconic ride at Playland in Rye late Sunday afternoon.
The park remained open as firefighters from Rye, Harrison and Mamaroneck used extended ladders to reach the cupola to put out the flames, which had produced a significant amount of smoke.
It is not immediately clear what caused the fire or whether there were any injuries.
The roof of the carousel, a Playland mainstay since 1928, sustained damage as a result of the fire.
