Mother in Stamford fatal fire gives first interview

STAMFORD - The woman who lost her three children and her parents in a fire on Christmas Day in Stamford is talking about the tragedy.

Madonna Badger says in an interview, taped for NBC's "Today" show, that she remembers yelling, "Where are my kids? Where are my babies?"

She says firefighters pulled her away as she tried to get back into the burning house to save her family.

Badger said she knew it was bad when somebody yelled to turn off the radios.

The interview airs Thursday morning.

The City of Stamford would not comment on Badger's interview because it says it has been notified that Badger intends to sue the city.

Starting tomorrow, News 12 Connecticut will have a one-on-one interview with the father of the girls, Matthew Badger.
