A large fire burned Thursday evening at the Woodland Park Zoo in Seattle. One person was injured, according to officials.

Smoke was pouring from the nocturnal exhibit.  The zoo said it would not be evacuating. No other customers were let in.

Zoo officials said there were some animals in nearby exhibits. They were taken to a safe location for assessment.

Animals from the "Day Exhibit," around 200 reptiles, amphibians and a tree kangaroo were safely evacuated. Seattle fire crews will now work to remove tortoises, lizards, amphibians and non-venomous snakes.
