ARLINGTON, Iowa (AP) - Authorities have determined the causes of death for five people found after a northeast Iowa house fire.

Ron Humphrey with the State Fire Marshal says the three adults and two children died of burns and smoke inhalation. They all had carbon monoxide in their systems, which indicate they were alive when the fire broke out.

Humphrey tells the Waterloo-Cedar Falls Courier (https://bit.ly/1g8xGnB ) that officials may never know what caused the Jan. 24 fire at a two-story house near rural Arlington. The house was completely destroyed and little evidence remained.
