A fire has swept through several warehouses in Brazil's cultural capital, Rio de Janeiro, destroying costumes and floats meant for the city's world-famous carnival in March.

Some warehouses lost 90 per cent of their stock, with overall damages from Monday's blaze estimated at more than $5m.

Many feel it will be an impossible task trying to restore an entire year's worth of work in just a single month.
