STAMFORD - The Stamford woman who lost her three little girls and parents in a fire Christmas Day spoke out this morning on NBC's "Today" show.

Madonna Badger tearfully talked about the fire that killed her family.

Badger said she didn't know that the bag of fireplace ashes were dangerous because her boyfriend Michael Borcina ran his hands through them before putting them in an entryway.

She says she then woke up choking and they frantically tried to find her children.

Coming up Monday on News 12 Connecticut, we will share an exclusive sit-down interview with Matthew Badger, the girls' father.
