Disneyland looks apocalyptic as wildfires ravage California

The happiest place on earth was enveloped in ominous, orange skies this week as wildfires loom across several parts of California -- and people at Disneyland captured some unbelievable images of the scene.

The billowing smoke is a result of the Canyon Fire 2 which broke out Monday morning and is causing widespread devastation in Southern California. The fast-moving fire has ripped through 7,500 acres and as of Tuesday afternoon was 25 percent contained, according to Anaheim Fire & Rescue.
