Site of tragic 2011 Christmas blaze sells for $500K

The plot of land that held the Connecticut home where three young girls and their two grandparents died in a Christmas day fire has been sold, a report said Monday.

Madonna Badger, who lost her five family members in the 2011 blaze, sold the .34 acre plot at 2267 Shippan Avenue in Stamford to her neighbor for $500,000, the Stamford Advocate reported.

The neighbor, Steve Loeb, told the newspaper that he plans to install a sculpture as a memorial for Badger’s daughters who were killed in the fire.

“I am planning a sculpture that will have three parts that move in the wind, one for each of the girls,” he said.

Badger put the lot on the market last year. She originally asked $850,000 for the land, which overlooks the Long Island Sound.

It’s her last connection to Stamford, and her attorney has said she’s been eager to sell it off and break all her ties with Connecticut.
