Fire broke out tonight at Downtown Disney at the construction site for the new Splitsville bowling alley and restaurant.
A Disneyland spokesperson confirmed for us that “the small fire was in a dumpster in the construction zone.” The fire has since been controlled.
Video footage posted to Twitter by user @PlayerOneTyler shows the scary blaze popping up over the construction wall.
The new location is expected to open early 2018. More information as this story develops. There’s no details at this point as to whether or not the opening will be delayed.
