The fire broke out in a tyre depot next to the daycare centre in Hermosillo in northern Mexico.

Of about 180 children at the centre at the time, 29 are reported dead from asphyxiation.

May God grant them a place in His heavenly Kingdom, and give comfort to their families.

And perhaps someone could investigate why a childcare centre was built right next to a business storing large quantities of highly flammable materials.
