A small fire erupted in a backstage area of Disneyland on Thursday night.
No one was injured in the fire, which occurred near the park’s iconic Fire Station building, the location of Walt Disney’s Apartment overlooking Main Street.
The fire station is not a real, working station, so a fire crew from the Anaheim Fire Department responded, putting out the fire within minutes.
The park remained open, but parts of Adventureland were closed due to an electrical outage. The Walt Disney Railroad also suspended operations.
The fire was described as a “vegetation fire”, but we saw this exact spot during our Walk in Walt’s Footsteps Tour two weeks ago and there are some storage buildings there, along with a cast member break area. When we were there, there were a few generators being stored there.

We’ve written two books about our time working – and playing – as Disney Cast Members at Walt Disney World in Orlando, Florida.
