DALLAS — A fire at the Dallas Zoo sparked a blaze and a firestorm of criticism Wednesday after a video surfaced showing a large fire raging inside the zoo’s music and lighting center.
The video shows a large smoke cloud rising from the center, where an outdoor dance hall is located.
The fire, which broke out during a concert, quickly engulfed a large portion of the building and caused significant damage to the building’s exterior.
The zoo said it had been advised of the fire by fire officials, and that the fire had been contained.
The fire was under control by late Wednesday night.
The city said it was not in possession of a cause of the blaze.
On social media, the fire was being described as “extremely dangerous.”
