A fund has been established at an Oelwein bank for the families of the five people who died Friday in a house fire near Arlington.

Donations to the "Arlington Fire Victims' Fund" can be dropped off or mailed to Fidelity Bank, 201 S. Frederick Ave., Oelwein 50662.

The victims, believed to be three adults and two children, died early Friday morning in a fire at 5094 F Ave. about four miles southwest of Arlington.

Fayette County officials said Tuesday they are waiting for the State Medical Examiner's Office to positively identify the victims.
