In 1985 I regularly watched English soccer games on Canadian TV. (They were shown at 10 a.m. because of the time zone difference.) I recall the game I was watching being interrupted by the announcement of this fire. It wasn't shown live because the match was being tape delayed. the pictures didn't show up on the news until the next day.

I will never understand the idiot fans who are jumping around on the pitch and singing chanting for their team while the grandstand was burning.

Wow. This is extraordinary. Had this happened today it would have been seen around the world in real time. This is the first time I have ever seen this. Another note is all this time of the footage and there was no fire department to arrive. That just wouldn't happen today. Great find Lava!
