TOLEDO, Ohio — A mother who lost her five young children and boyfriend in a weekend mobile home fire was still in shock Monday, a family spokesman said.

Anna Angel, who was working at a fast-food restaurant Sunday morning when the fire broke out, is now faced with trying to make funeral arrangements for her children, said Keith Hodkinson, the family spokesman.

Investigators said Monday that they have finished going through the home in Tiffin, about 50 miles southeast of Toledo, but do not know yet what started the fire. They also were waiting on results of autopsies performed Monday.

A state investigator said Sunday there was no indication of anything suspicious.

Angel lived in the home with her five children, ages 2 to 6, and her boyfriend.

A funeral home identified the children Monday as Tiara Angel, 6; Stormie Huey, 5; Trinity Huey, 4; Sunshine Huey, 3; and Domonic Fresch, 2.

Hodkinson identified the boyfriend as 25-year-old Tim Fresch, of Tiffin.

A fund has been set up to help Angel pay for the funerals and replace her belongings.
