Young players die in fire at Brazilian football club Flamengo's academy

A fire truck is seen in front of the training center of Rio's football club Flamengo after a deadly fire killed 10 and injured three
All of those killed were youth players for the team, one of Brazil's top clubs, according to local media.
The fire broke out at Ninho do Urubu, a state-of-the-art training centre that was expanded and opened only two months ago after a £4.8m (R87m) investment.
There was no word on the cause of the fire.
Local reports stated 10 people were feared to have died, while fire department chief Douglas Henaut confirmed the incident occurred at the lodgings.
As news of the fire broke, several teams and players expressed their condolences on Twitter. "This is the worst tragedy to happen to the club in its 123 years". The fire was reportedly controlled at around 7:20 a.m.
In addition to accommodation for young players, the facilities include several pitches, an aquatic park, a gym, a medical center and a mini-stadium.
Joao Pedro da Cruz, a 16-year-old player in the Flamengo youth league, told G1 news portal that he decided not to stay the night at the facility Thursday because the team wasn't going to train on Friday.
However, numerous lodgings have a reputation for poor health and hygiene standards.
"We are extremely sad and shaken by the news of the fire", tweeted Chapeco, a team in southern Brazil that lost 22 players in a plane crash in 2016.
The club spent roughly $6.2 million to expand the training ground known as "Ninho do Urubu" over the past year.
The fire occurred on Friday at the Ninho de Urubu training ground of Flamengo soccer club in western Rio de Janeiro, Brazil's Globo TV reported.
Rio de Janeiro's governor, Wilson Witzel, has declared three days of mourning for the deaths of those affected by the floods and the fire, and and President Jair Bolsonaro issued a statement lamenting the fire had taken "the young lives at the beginning of pursuing their professional dreams".
Zico, who is outside Brazil, wrote on Instagram: "What a shock getting this news here on the other side of the world", the former Brazil midfielder wrote. "May the Red-and-Black nation have strength and faith to get through this moment".
Officials postponed Saturday's two semifinals of the Guanabara Cup, one of which was between Flamengo and Fluminense.
