A fire swept through the training centre of Rio de Janeiro soccer club Flamengo on Friday, killing 10 people, including members of the club's youth side, firefighters and news reports said.

According to TV Globo, the exact location of the fire was in an old part of Nido del Urubu, which was used for lower categories of Flamengo Football Club.

This is the second tragedy to hit Rio de Janeiro in the past 48 hours after at least six people died following a storm which caused floods and mudslides on Wednesday night.

Players were reportedly sleeping in their dorm when the fire broke out.

Flamengo is one of the largest and most famous football clubs in Brazil, having graduated numerous top-ranked players including legendary attacking midfielder Zico. The fire department have said that they can not yet discount the possibillty that they will find more bodies.

After years of financial difficulties, Flamengo last year spent $6.2 million U.S. to expand the Ninho do Urubu training ground.

In addition to accommodation for young players, the facilities include several pitches, an aquatic park, a gym, a medical center and a mini stadium. The facility, which translates to the "Vulture's Nest", is so called because the club's symbol is a vulture.

Outside the complex, an Associated Press reporter saw two ambulances and a fire truck enter.

"I am very happy".

The blaze, which engulfed a dormitory at the youth team training centre, occurred when players were asleep.

"The majority of them (the team) stayed, my friends stayed (at the facility)", he said.
