KEYSTONE, Iowa (AP) - Authorities have released the names of two men who died in a Benton County house fire.

The fire was reported around 2 a.m. Tuesday north of Keystone. Firefighters say the two men were trapped inside the home, but a woman escaped by jumping from a second-floor window. She was taken to a hospital.

The Benton County Sheriff’s Office identified the men as Robert and Allen Michalec. Authorities originally reported that the two men were father and son, but their ages haven’t been released. The woman reportedly is one of the men’s daughters. Her name hasn’t been released.
