NEW HAVEN, Conn. (AP) — The father of three girls killed in a Christmas morning fire in Connecticut is accusing the city of Stamford of allowing the house to become a fire trap by failing to properly oversee construction.An attorney for Matthew Badger tells The Associated Press a notice of intent to sue the city was filed Friday.Attorney Richard Emery says the city failed to ensure fire alarms were hooked up when children were living in a residence under construction.The director of legal affairs for the city declined to comment, saying he hadn't reviewed the notice yet.Killed at the girls' mother's house on Long Island Sound were Matthew Badger's twin 7-year-old daughters and their 9-year-old sister. So were their grandparents, formerly of Louisville, Ky.Authorities say the blaze began after his former wife's friend discarded fireplace ashes.
