Liverpool football ground on fire

Saturday, March 3 – 1923
A fire during a football match at Anfield between Liverpool and Bolton Wanderers on Saturday caused damage to 25 yards of the stand. Repair work is not serious, and no was injured. Although the smoke was so dense that spectators could not see the players, the game continued uninterrupted. The fire brigade on arrival soon had the outbreak under control.
