3. June 26, 1985

A fire engulfed the rear car of Silver Monorail in transit from Epcot to the Transportation & Ticket Center. Fire detection systems, emergency exits, and evacuation planning were not in place at that time, and passengers actually kicked out side windows and climbed around the side of the train to reach the roof. They were eventually rescued by the Reedy Creek Fire Department. Seven passengers were hospitalized for smoke inhalation and minor injuries. The fire was caused by a flat tire being dragged across the concrete beam and was ignited by frictional heat.
