At about 12:45 AM EST we reported on TMSM’s Facebook that we were seeing confirmed reports of a fire at Disneyland. As more information came out we have learned a tree in front of the attraction caught on fire and the damage is only external, the fire is now out. Below is a report from KTLA5’s John A. Moreno
Firefighters on Saturday night extinguished a fire that engulfed a tree near the iconic It’s a Small World attraction at Disneyland, officials said.No injuries were immediately reported.
The blaze broke out about 9:19 p.m. in a backstage area at the Orange County theme park, said Disneyland spokeswoman Suzi Brown.
Firefighters responded to the scene and knocked down the flames by 9:48 p.m., according to a spokesperson for the Anaheim Fire Department.
It’s a Small World was not damaged in the blaze, which may have been sparked by fireworks, Brown said.
Fire Department investigators were working to determine the official cause of the incident.
The ride was closed as a result of the fire but was expected to reopen Saturday night, according to Brown.
