TOLEDO, Ohio (AP) — A family spokesman says a woman in Ohio who lost her five young children and boyfriend in a mobile home fire remains in shock.

The spokesman says Anna Angel is numb while also trying to make funeral arrangements for her children. The oldest was 6.

All five died Sunday morning along with their mother's boyfriend in the northwestern Ohio city of Tiffin. The spokesman identifies the boyfriend as 25-year-old Tim Fresch.

A relative and neighbors say Angel was at work when the fire broke out. A fund has been set up to help her pay for the funerals and replace her belongings lost in the fire.

Investigators said Monday that they do not know what started the fire and are waiting on autopsy reports.
