According to CTV news, a Christmas Tree in the lobby of Disney's Grand Californian hotel at the Disneyland Resort caught fire early Wednesday morning. Reportedly, staff were changing some bulbs on the tree around 3 a.m. this morning and the fire was started when the power to the tree was turned back on. The fire was controlled by the hotel sprinkler system until fire crews arrived on the scene. Hotel guests were evacuated to three locations and no injuries were reported. The lobby likely suffered smoke damage, as well as damage to carpets and furniture from the reported one to two feet of water that was pooled on the floor. An estimate of the damage is not yet available. The resort will release a statement later today.
