(WHAS11) -- A second lawsuit is being filed in connection with the Christmas day house fire in Connecticut that killed two Louisville natives and their three grandchildren.

Madonna Badger, the owner of the house and the mother of the three girls who were killed, is now suing the city of Stamford.

The fire was blamed on fireplace ashes that were thrown out too close to the house, which was being renovated at the time.

Badger's lawsuit says the city of Stamford failed to inspect the ongoing renovations and may have destroyed evidence by demolishing the house just a day after the fire.

Badger's ex-husband Matthew is also suing the city.

Louisville natives Pauline and Lomer Johnson were killed in that fire.  They were visiting their daughter Madonna and her children for the holidays.
