Tragedy. A fire destroyed a dormitory at the youth team training center of Flamengo, Brazil’s most popular football club, on Friday. Ten teenage players (between 14 and 16) died, and three others were injured.

One surviving player told the press the fire was started by an air conditioning unit in his room—an investigation is underway.
