Disneyland explosion leads to Mickey's Toontown evacuation
There was a bit of chaos at Disneyland in Los Angeles Tuesday (May 28), after an explosion occurred in the Mickey's Toontown section of the park. The cause of the explosion was determined to be from a "dry ice bomb," authorities say.
Sgt. Bob Dunn of the Anaheim Police Department tells the LA Times, "Unfortunately, it's an all too-common experience." The blast is similar to others that have occurred in Anaheim neighborhoods over the past several months.
The explosion caused the Toontown section of the park to be evacuated, with police being called around 5:30 p.m. PT. Toontown then reopened about 7:30 p.m. No injuries were reported.
The "dry ice bomb" in question was simply dry ice inside of a plastic bottle, that was then left in a garbage can. Investigators have yet to determine why Toontown was the target, or what the motive was.
