PASADENA, Calif. (KGTV) -- A float in the Rose Parade unexpectedly caught fire Tuesday morning.
Video shows the Chinese American Heritage Foundation’s train float proceeding down its normal route when suddenly smoke begins to appear.
Later in the video, the float can be seen stopping, backing up traffic along the route.
The Rose Parade’s Twitter account tweeted that the fire was due to “technical difficulties.”
One of the 2019 #RoseParade floats is experiencing technical difficulties at Orange Grove and Colorado. Thank you for patience and cooperation with law enforcement!
