THE second half of a Conference League football match where Yeovil Town faced Solihull Moors was delayed after a fire broke out at Huish Park during the half-time interval today (January 4).

As reported by sources at the highly awaited match, a blaze ravaged through the generator room which provides electricity to the floodlights on the away terrace as well as the Screwfix Stand.

Emergency services were called after a park officials reported the blaze, where firefighters then battled the blaze. Due to this, the second half of the game was put on hold until the smoke had been calmed. 

After the fire was successfully put out and power to the floodlights was restored, the second half resumed after a anxious 39-minute break for half-time.

As Euro Weekly News understands, the cause of the fire is still unknown at this stage and an investigation has been launched.
