The blaze burned for almost an hour and severely damaged eight cars after it broke out around 4:30 p.m. Monday in the Mickey & Friends parking structure, according to Sgt. Daron Wyatt of Anaheim Fire and Rescue.

Seven people were treated for signs of excessive smoke inhalation and four were transported to a nearby hospital, firefighters said. The investigation into the cause of the fire was underway, officials stated.

The blaze was in the Mickey & Friends structure, Sgt. Daron Wyatt of Anaheim Fire and Rescue told KTLA.

Multiple cars mysteriously went up in flames inside a Disneyland parking garage on Monday night - sending giant plumes of smoke billowing in all directions and sparking a wave of evacuations, reports said. The two possible sources were withing three feet of each other, authorities said.

"Due to the extreme heat produced by the fire, the configuration of the vehicles, and their proximity to one another, the exact cause and origin can not be determined without further testing and evaluation".

It was not immediately clear what led to the fire, but authorities did not suspect foul play. In total, damages are estimated at about $180,000. Another one to three more vehicles reportedly incurred minor damage from radiant heat.
