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.
New Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross named and revealed
Mitsubishi has a gap to fill between the ASX and Outlander, and this is the SUV that will do it - the Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross. Mitsubishi Motors used the Eclipse name on a coupe model sold in the U.S.in the late 1980's and early 1990's.
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.
