Fire at training ground of Brazilian club Flamengo -- 10 dead

Firefighters were called in just after 5 a.m.to battle a blaze at the Ninho de Urubu training ground of the Flamengo soccer club in Rio de Janeiro's western region, a fire official told The Associated Press.

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

The fire site in Rio de Janeiro.

The dead were six players and four team staff, the channel Sportv said.

Tributes from fans are laid over a Flamengo flag outside the club's training complex that was gutted by fire.

In addition to the deaths, three people were injured.

The cause is under investigation, but a player with the under-17 side attributed the fire to an air conditioner.

"We are distraught", Flamengo President Rodolfo Landim said outside the complex, where friends, fans and neighbors gathered, some forming a circle to pray.

Brazil's new far-right President Jair Bolsonaro campaigned with promises to crackdown on rising crime and said that police who kill criminals should be given medals not face prosecution.

Earlier, Legit.ng had reported how Brazilian and Everton summer signing Richarlison revealed how he nearly quit football when he was young before hitting his breakthrough.

Brazilian star forward and Paris Saint-Germain player Neymar posted the club's crest on Instagram, writing: "My sentiments".

"What sad News! Praying for everyone!"

"Just by thinking about the days and nights I spent in the training center gives me goose bumps", said the 18-year-old. The fire was under control by 7.30am. The statement said an investigation into the licensing process was under way.

"The majority of [the team] stayed, my friends stayed [at the facility]", he said.

Fluminense, the most popular club in football-crazed Brazil, was among a number of clubs that sent messages of condolence on social media.

Youth league teams also train at the facility, known as Ninho do Urubu.

Brazil football legend Pelé described the club as "a place where young people pursue their dreams". Law enforcement officials in Brazil's second largest city say that at least 11 suspected drug traffickers were killed in a shootout with police in a slum located in the bohemian Santa Teresa neighborhood.
