UNION CITY -

A viewing was held Tuesday for the five young victims of a house fire in Union City.

A private, family-only viewing was held Tuesday morning. A viewing open to the public began at 12 p.m. and will continue through the night.

The funeral for the children, ages 2 through 13, will be held Wednesday at 10 a.m.

The children were killed in a fire on July 13 at their home on the 400 block of 25th Street. According to officials, the fire started on the first floor of the home, and the five children were upstairs when it happened.

A GoFundMe page has raised more than $48,000 for the family.

Union City is paying for the funerals through the Fire Victims Fund.

The cause of the fire has not yet been released.
