FIREFIGHTERS were called out to a blaze at the old Saints stadium last night (Thursday, January 13).
Crews were called out to a corridor of historic Knowsley Road at about 11.30pm.
The blaze left a small section of the unoccupied stadium severely damaged by the flames and a 300 sq metre section of the building was left smoke damaged.
Fire crews secured the premises and remained at the scene for just over an hour.
It is believed to be the first time a blaze has been sparked at Knowsley Road since Saints chiefs decided it was time for the club to bid a fond farewell to the age-old stadium.
