While the fire was quickly extinguished by Disneyland’s fire department, it has been concluded that the backstage incident was caused by a temporary construction generator.

In a statement from Frank Polizzi, a spokesperson for the California Division of Occupational Safety and Health, he stated: “The fire was related to a generator supplying power to a building.”

While Adventureland and Main Street were closed due to associated power outages, both areas reopened to guests the next morning at park open.

A fire has been reported at Disneyland, shutting down all of Main Street and Adventureland.

According to ABC7, Anaheim Fire and Rescue Department crews had to put out a blaze that erupted just after 6:00 PM Thursday evening. The blaze is believed to have gone up within an area of vegetation within the park, likely the backstage area of Jungle Cruise where gas tanks for the boats as well as some park power infrastructure is located.

Currently, the park is not closed, but certain areas have been shut down due to power outages and closed off to guests.


No injuries or damages have been reported since the fire was put out. We will continue to add to this page as further updates arise.
