BELLEVUE, Pa. (AP) - Funeral arrangements are set for a family of five killed in a fire at their western Pennsylvania home last week.

The Friday night blaze in Bellevue, just northwest of Pittsburgh, killed 41-year-old Stephen Lasch, 38-year-old Angela Lasch, and their three children: 11-year-old Noah, 6-year-old Kayley and 4-year-old Hannah.

The family’s funeral service is scheduled for 10 a.m. Friday at Risen Lord Roman Catholic Church in Brighton Heights. A viewing for family and friends will be held on Thursday at a funeral home.

More than 900 people have responded to an online fundraising effort to cover the funeral expenses. By Wednesday morning, over $45,838 had been raised on the GoFundMe account .

Autopsies show that all died of acute inhalation of smoke and fumes.

The cause of the fire remains under investigation.
