Friends, family remember victims of Christmas Day fire

MANHATTAN - Hundreds of friends and family were in Manhattan today for the wake for the three young girls killed in the Christmas Day fire that left five dead in Stamford, Conn.

Lily Badger, 10, and 7-year-old twin sisters Grace and Sarah Badger, died in a house fire along with their grandparents. The girls were all students at the Windward School in White Plains.

Officials say the fire was started by improperly discarded fireplace embers that were left inside the house. Investigators say that the house was still under construction and was not properly inspected or equipped with smoke detectors.

The funeral for the three children will be held tomorrow in Manhattan.
