We're receiving word of another chemical spill at Disneyland within the last couple hours (see the MousePlanet home page).

We're not sure yet how serious this is and we're working to get more information and comment. If you see any coverage of things (police/fire are on scene and news helicoptors are in the air), you can help us out by pointing it out.

Ok, we got an official comment from the Anaheim Fire Department. Recap just posted to the MousePlanet home page:


Maria Sable, spokesperson for the Anaheim Fire Department has confirmed that a hazarous materials incident occured at Disneyland at 3:29 p.m. It occured in a backstage vehicle repair area and apparently involved the fall and breaking of a drum containing chemicles related to fiberglass. The break allowed gas to escape. One cast member has been transported to a local area hospital, the "uniform and transportation center" (her words, not exactly sure which departments this would be) have been evacuated. Currently no onstage areas are affected, though the Disneyland Railroad has been shut down.

So it isn't as bad as we'd first heard.
