  • The guard set fire to several children and himself at the Innocent Children's People Municipal Education Centre in Janaúba in Minas Gerias south east Brazil police say. This was the scene as victims were being rushed to hospital

The guard sprayed them with alcohol before setting them on fire, according to one news account.

At least five toddlers and six teachers have died during a horrific arson attack at their nursery this morning.

Dozens of people were also hurt in the blaze while the guard, who was reported to be mentally ill, died after succumbing to his own burn injuries. "He has been an employee since 2008 and has never had a bad record so we could never have anticipated something of this nature happening", Mayor of Janauba, Carlos Isaildon Mendes, told the media.

The incident left the perpetrator "with burns all over his body", Bruno Ataide Santos, director of the local hospital stated.

Authorities have identified the security guard as 50-year-old Damiao Soares dos Santos.

Of the 25 people who were injured, 22 were children - the parts of the body and the extent to which each victim was burned vary considerably, but majority are in critical condition.
