ANAHEIM (CBSLA.com) A smoky trash fire caused some tense moments for patrons at Disneyland Sunday.
CBS2′s Tom Wait spoke to some people who said they were scared.
The smoke rising from just behind Cinderellas Castle was visible for miles.
It did look pretty scary, yes, said one patron.
People Tweeted pics of the big black plume of smoke from the Matterhorn, Thunder Mountain and Small World.
Several families told Wait they didnt know what to do and worried the fire might ruin their experience.
I was actually worried. Its my first time being down here in California going to Disneyland. I was like Oh God, dont tell me its on fire, said Sabrina Cole.
The Cole family from Colorado wondered if their 3-year-olds first trip to Disneyland would be ruined.
It was a sentiment echoed by several parents.
I didnt want her to miss out on her first trip, so we were hoping there wasnt anything major going on, said Stephanie Merl, holding her daughter.
The smoke was caused by trash that somehow caught fire. Anaheim authorities say the fire department knocked down the flames in less than 10 minutes.
No one was hurt. Although it does not appear suspicious, arson investigators are on the case.
Guests kept their cool and were able to enjoy their experience, Wait reported.
We noticed there werent large numbers of people leaving the park so we assumed there was no big evacuation or anything, Merl added.
Disneyland officials confirmed there was no evacuation ordered and their spokesperson says the fire was never close to any guests or attractions.
This is a follow up to the breaking story posted by Extremely Extreme Extremist yesterday.
Was anyone “terrorized?”
Not until after they talk to their lawyers.
Watch and see it the Fire Department traces this fire to a newly hired employee who was taking his Medical Marijuana Bong Break while dressed as Goofy. He thought he was bailing out the rainwater from down in the basement, just like in that cartoon movie. “That wasn’t real?”
DANG That was a big fire.
As Cinderella Castle is in Florida, it would have to be very large to have been seen from down there.
Now if it was Snow White Castle, that would be different.
I am pretty much terrorized any time I talk with a lawyer.
The castle at Disneyland is the Sleeping Beauty castle...
Mickey and Goofy were dancing around a trashcan fire?
Still celebrating the Kings’ Stanley Cup.
Yeah, the people in that picture look “terrified”. It looks to be at least a mile away
Just mr. mulato and his new choom gang, er cabinet, puffing on the hookah trying to come up with some ideas. That Caterpillars always got some good stuff that’s why mr. mulato goes to Disneyland.
Yes of course. Sorry about that.
