[R] Reading text files from other languages

I'm trying to read a data file that contains characters from the Spanish
> Station <- read.fwf("LosDatos.txt",widths=c(7,7,25,8,8,5),header=FALSE,
Then the R interpreter issues the following message:
Error en substring(x, first, last) :
invalid multibyte string at '<d1>A, S.'
Calls: read.fwf -> cat -> sapply -> lapply -> FUN -> substring
I know that the message is because there is a "Ñ" before the text "A, S.".
Is there a way to tell R that the text file is UTF-8 encoded?
