The Bradford City Stadium fire is one of the most horrifying things I've seen. That fire spread to the whole stadium within 8 minutes. Terrible.

It is really terrible. They show this video as part of the fire fighting training I have to do for work.

It was trash under the bleachers and a cigarette butt that started the blaze. Then the bigger issue was the team owner had problems with people entering without paying so they locked the gates on the stadium once the game started. So those people had no escape.

Lesson was to show how fast the fire spread.

i saw one video where two large groups of fans met in the streets not even during a game to wage war. Pretty much beat the shite out of each other for about 20 mins, then called it a day.

That one worse how? Are you saying that hooliganism led to it or that it's a great tragedy?
