Stamford Public Safety, Health Committee to review legal settlement in deadly 2011 Christmas fire

Posted: Updated:
STAMFORD -

The Stamford Public Safety and Health Committee will review a legal settlement in the deadly 2011 Christmas fire that killed three young sisters and their grandparents.

The city has agreed to pay the Badger family an undisclosed amount of money following a series of lawsuits.

The fire killed 7-year-old twins Grace and Sarah Badger, 9-year-old Lily Badger, and their maternal grandparents.

According to the family, crucial evidence was destroyed since the house was torn down after two days.

The family says the city also issued a work permit to an unlicensed contractor who was dating the victims' mother.

A Stamford Board of Representatives Member says the committee should review the settlement with the public's involvement.

The fire was blamed on fireplace ashes left in a mudroom.
