Toontown evacuated after explosion at Disneyland, police say

Police were evacuating people Tuesday evening at Disneyland's Toontown after a report of an explosion that appeared to have involved dry ice, authorities said.

No injuries were reported in the blast, which was called in about 5:30 p.m, Sgt. Robert Dunn of the Anaheim Police Department said.

"As a precaution we have evacuated Toontown," Dunn told The Times. 

He said the dry ice appeared to have been placed in a plastic bottle. Officers on the scene were gathering evidence.

A bomb squad from the Orange County Sheriff's Department was responding. No other details were immediately available.
