Christmas House Fire
December 27, 2011 by staff
Christmas House Fire, Investigators were talking to a New York City advertising executive and an acquaintance who survived a Christmas morning house fire that killed her three daughters and her parents to try to determine what caused the blaze. Madonna Badger, who was having work done on the home she bought for $1.7 million last year, was released from hospital Monday.
The home was demolished Monday due to the fire damage and safety concerns. Badger’s three daughters – a 10-year-old and 7-year-old twins – and her parents, who were visiting for the holiday, died.
Badger’s father, Lomer Johnson, had worked as a Santa at Saks Fifth Avenue’s flagship store in Manhattan. “Mr. Johnson was Saks Fifth Avenue’s beloved Santa, and we are heartbroken about this terrible tragedy,” spokeswoman Julia Bently said.
Neighbors said they awoke to the sound of screaming shortly before 5 a.m. on Christmas morning and rushed outside to help, but they could only watch in horror as flames devoured the grand home and the shocked, injured survivors were led away from the house.
Badger, an ad executive in the fashion industry, is the founder of New York City-based Badger & Winters Group. A supervisor at Stamford Hospital said she was treated and discharged by Sunday evening.
