SE ATLANTA | Warehouse damaged in 2-alarm fire

ATLANTA, Ga. -- DeKalb County firefighters responded to a warehouse blaze Monday evening at about 11 p.m. and remained there through the night.

The building located at 3250 Woodstock Road in Southeast Atlanta is owned by Superior Rigging & Erecting Co, the company that transports and raises the Macy's Christmas tree at Lenox mall every year.

DeKalb Assistant Fire Chief Steve Ham said the blaze consumed about a quarter of the 90,000 square-foot metal building. At one point, propane tanks used to power fork lifts exploded.

It took firefighters a little over an hour to bring the fire under control.

Officials says they have a good idea where in the building the fire started, but an investigation is underway to determine the cause.

No one was injured.

STONE MOUNTAIN | Woman celebrates 104th birthday

STONE MOUNTAIN, Ga. -- Surrounded by a daughter, six grandchildren, 14 great-grandchildren and 26 great-great-grandchildren, Willie May Hardy celebrated her 104th birthday.

"I feel fine, thanks to the good Lord who gives me strength and has blessed me to get this old," Hardy laughed.

She was born in 1908, the same year the first Ford Model T was rolled out. She grew up in rural south Georgia and said from an early age she wasn't afraid of hard work.

"I'd chop cotton. I'd hoe cotton. I'd pick cotton. Anything I could do in a field I did it to help out," Hardy said. "If someone called in sick, I could even pick up the plow and get the mule going."
