Blazing Fire Damages Shanghai's Hongkou Soccer Stadium

A large fire damaged part of Hongkou Stadium, home turf of Chinese Super League side Shanghai Greenland Shenhua, on Tuesday, March 28. The blaze, which broke out early in the day, scorched part of the building’s exterior.

There were no reports of any injuries.

It’s believed the fire began in a section of the stadium used by climbers.
