A fire broke out in Disneyland's main parking structure Monday that burned eight cars and caused seven people to be treated for smoke inhalation, authorities said.
Authorities announced the two-alarm fire was knocked down at about 5:35 p.m. Officials initially waited for the smoke to clear before allowing guests to return to their vehicles shortly after 7 p.m.
Numerous cars caught on fire inside the auto park.
Four Disneyland employees were taken to hospital for smoke inhalation. About one to three vehicles sustained minor damage from the heat, said police Sgt. Daron Wyatt, who also serves as a public information officer for the Anaheim Fire Department. The cause of the fire is now under investigation, but there is nothing to suggest foul play at this time.
Planned Parenthood supporters to rally in Springfield Saturday
Republicans have long argued taxpayer dollars should not be used to fund health clinics that provide abortions. Tim Kenefick, 66, of Goose Creek attended the rally because he said he considers the issue paramount.
Gray smoke could be seen pouring out of the structure when the blazes were first reported on the level 3 "Mickey" section at the height of the flames. Firefighters evacuated the structure as they battled the blaze, which was knocked down in about 30 minutes.
