Small Backstage Fire at Disneyland Extinguished Quickly, No Injuries Reported

A small fire broke out Thursday night backstage at Disneyland Park, but was extinguished quickly, causing no injuries and little impact to guests.

The incident occurred just after 6:00pm behind Main Street USA, which backs up to the Jungle Cruise boat storage area.

Anaheim firefighters were called and, according to spokesperson Sgt. Shane Carringer, the fire was put out ” within minutes.”

Guests were rerouted from some areas in Adventureland and Main Street and there were some brief power outages in those areas.

The cause of the fire isn’t known, but Disneyland officials described the blaze as a “vegetation fire.”

As of this morning, Disneyland Park is operating as normal.
