No Cause Yet For Deadly Conn. Fire

STAMFORD, Conn. (AP) - Fire officials in Stamford, Conn. say it may be another few days before they know the cause of a house fire that killed five people Christmas morning. They say fire marshals haven't yet entered the five-bedroom, $1.7 million home to examine it.

Neighbors in the wealthy neighborhood of Shippan Point say they were awakened to screams at 5 a.m., and someone yelling "Help, help, help me!"

Killed were the three daughters of advertising executive Madonna Badger and her parents, who were visiting for the holidays. Badger and a man who was working as a contractor on the home escaped. Her husband was in New York at the time.
