Disneyland Explosion Prompts Toontown Evacuation

An explosion was reported at Disneyland in Anaheim, California on Tuesday, according to local news outlets, prompting the evacuation of a portion of the park.

The blast occurred in the Mickey's Toontown section of the theme park, according to CBS Los Angeles.

A plastic bottle filled with dry ice reportedly ruptured inside a trash can, the Anaheim Police Department told the Los Angeles Times. No injuries were reported.

Toontown was evacuated as a precaution and fire crews responded at the scene, according to ABC 10 News.

The Orange County Sheriff's Department also sent a bomb squad to the scene, the Los Angeles Times reported.

Here's more from the Associated Press:

Park visitor Allen Wolf says he was about 20 feet from the blast, near Toontown's City Hall. He said the sound was similar to a gunshot, but louder.

Wolf says the park's music never stopped playing as security surrounded the trash cans where the bang came from and told visitors they were evacuating.

Wolf also tweeted a picture of people leaving Toontown:

"This afternoon, a small bang was heard in a trash can at Mickey's Toontown," a Disney spokeswoman said, according to Reuters. "In an abundance of caution, we evacuated Toontown to allow local authorities the opportunity to investigate."
