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

Dozens of people were also hurt in the blaze while the guard, who was reported to be mentally ill, also died after succumbing to his own burn injuries.

Fifteen victims with life threatening injuries have been sent to the capital Belo Horizonte where hospital facilities are more able to cope than than those in the small city where the tragedy occurred.

Although a police investigation has begun it is not yet known what led the security guard named locally as Damiao Soares dos Santos, aged 50, to carryout the attack which left 15 others in serious condition in hospital.

At least four children have been killed in Brazil after a security guard allegedly set fire to a childcare centre.

The municipality of Janauba announced a 7-day mourning in region.

Around 50 people were injured in the incident where they were admitted to the local hospital.

A local firefighter was reported saying the majority of the victims ranged in age from one to four years old, according to Associated Press.

Carlos Isaildon Mendes, Mayor of Janauba said, "This is a very complicated situation".

"This could have been worse because the babies' room was in the hall next door".

Brazilian President Michel Temer expressed his sympathies via Twitter.
