TIFFIN, Ohio (AP) - A friend says the mother of five young children killed in an Ohio mobile home fire identified them and kissed them goodbye.

The fire Sunday morning killed the woman's boyfriend and the children. The oldest child was 6.

Police and a neighbor say the woman, Anna Angel, learned about the fire while working a shift at a nearby fast-food restaurant and raced home on her bicycle.

Co-worker Patricia Boes tells The Blade in Toledo she accompanied Angel as the woman identified her children at a hospital and kissed each one goodbye.

Authorities wouldn't comment on a possible cause of the fire, which happened in the northwestern Ohio city of Tiffin. A state fire marshal's investigator says there were no indications of anything suspicious.

The investigator says it could take two days before authorities know how the six died.
