Authorities have identified the mother and three children killed a house fire in the central Iowa town of Boxholm.

Rick Lampe with the Boone County Sheriff's Department says 27-year-old Amber Sorenson, 9-year-old Riley Sorenson, 6-year-old Autumn Sorenson and 4-year-old Brayden Sorenson all died in the fire.

The fire in Boone County created challenges for firefighters because of frigid conditions.

The fire was reported around 12:45 a.m. Sunday when the temperature was 6 degrees below zero in the town of about 200.

The victims' bodies were recovered around 2:15 a.m.
