Scores of people left Disneyland disappointed tonight because the fireworks show was canceled. There was good reason for that--a brushfire has broken out in the Anaheim Hills. The wind-driven 5-acre blaze has shut down the 241 Tollroad between the 91 Freeway and Santiago Canyon Road.

The fire, which is currently located on the east side of the 241, may have started on the center median. No evacuations have been ordered. A red flag warning was issued for the area will remain in effect through Wednesday, 10 a.m.

Back at Disneyland, some 15 miles to the West, it "snowed" on Main Street.
