NEWNAN, Ga. -- The families of the five victims killed in the Newnan fire early Saturday morning are looking for more answers as to what caused it. They believe the home may have had electrical problems before the fire, and at least one relative may look into hiring a lawyer. Meanwhile, the police investigation will also be looking for more information.

The Newnan community has rallied to support the victims' families and the 11-year-old girl who survived. They've offered gifts and messages of love and support. Dozens came together Saturday night for a candlelight vigil in front of the home. Family members said they were moved by the display.

"The people have been surrounding us, the community has been very supportive, and we appreciate it," said Dwight Bailey, great-grandfather of the young victims and grandfather of mother Alonna McCrary.

The family plans to route donations through an account set up at Wells Fargo when the bank opens Monday morning.
