A Christmas Day fire that killed three children and their grandparents was a tragic accident related to a fireplace in the home, not the result of foul play, the mayor said Tuesday.
Fire tore through a house in Stamford early Sunday, killing five people and making it among the worst Christmases in the city's history, the mayor said.
Seven people thought to be related had opened their Christmas gifts and started cleaning up the wrapping paper when they were fatally shot in a suburban Fort Worth apartment, police said Sunday.
"It is a terrible, terrible day," Mayor Michael Pavia told reporters at the scene of the fire.
