A wildfire that scorched thousands of acres in Anaheim Hills cast a spooky orange glow in the skies over the Happiest Place on Earth at Disneyland on Monday. Visitors took to Twitter and Instagram to share photos at the resort, which is decorated for the Halloween season.

The fire, dubbed the Canyon Fire 2, destroyed multiple homes and forced hundreds of evacuations as of Monday afternoon. The blaze is now burning in parts of Anaheim, Orange and Tustin, is creating poor air quality throughout the area, and officials have warned residents to be careful while driving.

Disneyland is about 10-miles (16km) from the fire. That’s enough for the park to open today, but tourists and Disney are watching the fire closely.
