Sometime between 3 and 3:30 a.m., a friend staying in the home put the fireplace ashes in a bag and left it either in or outside a mudroom and trash enclosure attached to the rear of the house, Stamford's fire marshal Barry Callahan said.
"The fire entered the house quickly and spread throughout the first floor and up two interior vertical openings, trapping the occupants on the upper floors," Mr. Callahan said.
