A Christmas morning fire that killed a couple and three of their grandchildren was accidentally started by old fireplace embers that had been discarded outdoors near a first-floor entryway, officials said Tuesday.
The mayor of Stamford, Conn., says the city has probably never seen a worse Christmas Day. Five people died in an early morning house fire.

Stamford firefighters responded about 4:52 a.m. Christmas Day to a fully involved house fire at 2267 Shippan Avenue in Stamford. Two people escaped the fire, but five people perished when they were trapped by the house fire.
Stamford Fire & Rescue Acting Fire Chief Antonio Conte was brought to tears explaining “It’s never easy … that’s for sure. I’ve been on this job for 38 years … it’s not easy to take.”
The home was heavily damaged after fire pushed back firefighters that responded to the fire. Photos show the entire roof of the home burned through. The 3,349-square-foot home was rendered unstable by the fire, which would delay investigation of the cause of the fire.
The remaining unstable structure was leveled today.Weather Data for Tuesday, December 27th, 2011
