TIFFIN, Ohio -- Investigators in Ohio say it may take several days to determine what started a mobile home fire that killed a man and five children ages 6 and under.
All six died Sunday morning in the fast-moving fire.
A relative and neighbours say the mother of the five children was at work when the fire broke out in a mobile home park in the northwestern Ohio city of Tiffin.
Owanna Ortiz says her cousin, Anna Angel, lived in the home with her children and the man who died.
She says Angel had four daughters of her own as well as a son with the man.
A state fire marshal's investigator says it's too early to talk about a possible cause. He says there were no indications of anything suspicious.
