The Anaheim Fire Department received a call at 3:29 a.m. on Thursday morning of a structure fire in the radio house of the New Orleans Square train station at Disneyland, according to Anaheim Police and Fire spokesperson Sgt. Jacob Gallacher. The Anaheim Fire Department and the on-site Disneyland Fire Department crews fought the small fire for 15 minutes.

The flames damaged the train station radio house building between the New Orleans Square depot and a water tower used to refill the steam engines. The radio house is used by Disneyland employees as a staff break room.
