The fire killed 7-year-old twins Grace and Sarah Badger, 9-year-old Lily Badger and their maternal grandparents, Lomar and Pauline Johnson. Authorities blamed fireplace ashes left in a mudroom.
City officials denied allegations in Badger’s lawsuit. She accused them of improperly ordering her home demolished the day after the fire to destroy evidence of the city not properly inspecting new fire alarms and other renovations at the home.
