WOLVES' historic Molineux stadium caught fire in the early hours of Sunday morning.
It was ablaze for around two hours from 1:40am as 20 firefighters successfully battled to contain the flames.
Fortunately no one was injured in the fire which broke out in an empty bar area of the Sir Jack Hayward stand.
Smoke could be seen pouring out the stadium as PA messages told people to leave the area.
The building's fire alarm system was blaring as nearby local residents took footage of the concerning scenes.
Andy Howard, watch manager at Wolverhampton fire station, said: "There's been a fire in the bar area, in the kitchen.
"It was contained to the room of origin but the bar area and part of the workspace was involved in fire. Otherwise it was just smoke damage to the rest of the floor."
A West Midlands Fire Service spokesman said they were called at 1:56am and the first crew arrived five minutes later.
