BELLEVUE, Neb. (AP) - Services have been scheduled for six members of a rural southeast Nebraska family who died in a house fire.

Cass County officials say 36-year-old Michael and 36-year-old Michelle Speer and their girls were killed overnight Wednesday at the house near the village of Nehawka (neh-HAH’-kuh). The four girls have been identified as 11-year-old Elli Perez, 7-year-old Adilynn Speer, 5-year-old Emma Speer and 2-year-old Anniston Speer.

A visitation is scheduled to begin at 6 p.m. Monday at Calvary Christian Church in Bellevue. A memorial service is set to begin at 10 a.m. Tuesday at the church.

Nebraska State Fire Marshal spokesman Ray Nance could not say Tuesday morning what caused the blaze. The investigation is continuing.
