Correspondents say the city hall
and ruling party headquarters are
also in flames.
A huge crowd is surging towards
the presidential palace and the
main airport has been shut.
MPs have suspended a vote on
changing the constitution to allow
Mr Compaore to stand for re-
election next year.
Five people have been killed in the
protests, among the most serious
against Mr Compaore's rule, reports
BBC Afrique's Yacouba Ouedraogo
from the capital.
The military had earlier fired live
bullets at protesters who had
stormed parliament, he says.
