September 28, 1914
The grand stand and offices of the Clyde F.C., Glasgow, were destroyed by fire early this morning, the damage being officially estimated at £3,000.
The barking of a watch dog gave the alarm, but the flames had completely enveloped the structure, which soon collapsed. Several people rushed out of their dwellings, but the firemen saved the houses. It was feared the dog perished.
To-day’s holiday match with the Celtic has been transferred to the Parkhead ground.
