Ten die in Rio's Flamengo football club fire
2019-02-08 16:19:21

A fire has engulfed a dormitory at the youth team training centre of one of Brazil's biggest football clubs, killing 10 people, the BBC reports. 

Three people were also injured when the fire broke out at Ninho de Urubu, the training ground of Flamengo football club, in Rio de Janeiro.

All 10 victims are said by local media to be young athletes. The cause of the fire is not yet known.

Flamengo is one of Brazil's biggest and best-known clubs internationally.

They currently sit at second place in Brazil's Série A table - and have won the league five times.

Former player and Brazil football legend, Ronaldinho, offered his condolences for the "terrible tragedy" in an early tweet on Friday morning.

He published the club's crest in black-and-white alongside the message.
