Statement Issued on Cause of Disneyland Fire on February 6th


On February 6th a fire broke out in an area behind the Disneyland Firehouse and the Emporium on the Main Street, U.S.A. section of Disneyland Park, burning an area of vegetation near the Jungle Cruise.

Disneyland’s fire department along with the Anaheim Fire & Rescue put out the fire, but power went out in Adventureland as a result of the incident, prompting the area to be closed. Everything was reopened by the following morning.

The cause was a  construction generator.

The OC Register is reporting that the California (DOSH) Division of Occupational Safety and Health has released a statement about the fire. Spokesperson Frank Polizzi said:

“The fire was related to a generator supplying power to a building.”

According to the OC Register “DOSH contacted Disneyland shortly after seeing media reports about the fire, Polizzi said. DOSH decided not to investigate the Disneyland fire because it was unrelated to a ride or the maintenance of a ride, Polizzi said.”

No one was injured and no buildings were damaged.
