The cause of a fire in a Disneyland parking structure that injured seven employees and did more than $180,000 in damage, damaging eight cars, was under investigation Tuesday.

Foul play is not suspected in the fire, which was reported at 4:37 p.m. Monday on the second floor of the Mickey & Friends parking structure. Firefighters evacuated the structure as they battled the blaze, which was knocked down in about 30 minutes.

Four cars were destroyed and four others were badly damaged, said the Anaheim Fire Department. About one to three vehicles sustained minor damage from the heat, said police Sgt. Daron Wyatt, who also serves as a public information officer for the Anaheim Fire Department. He said seven people — all Disneyland employees — were treated for minor smoke inhalation, but three were not taken to a hospital.

Park visitors were allowed to retrieve their vehicles just before 7 p.m., according to Anaheim police.

The parking structure has floors named after Disney characters and provides about 10,000 parking spaces.
