A fire has gutted the National Museum of Brazil in Rio de Janeiro, the oldest scientific institution in the country.
 
Most of the 20 million items it contained, including the oldest human remains discovered in the Americas, are believed to have been destroyed.
 
Firefighters are working to put out the blaze. No injuries have been reported.
 
The museum, which once served as the residence for the Portuguese royal family, celebrated its 200th anniversary this year.
