Atlanta firefighters sing about fire prevention

ATLANTA -- We all know that humor -- and song lyrics -- help people learn.

The Atlanta Fire Department hopes for a lot of laughs in addition to fire safety preparation with the video its firefighters made for Fire Safety Prevention Month.

The firefighters changed the words to the Doors' "Light My Fire" -- with hilarious results. A spokeswoman for the fire department put it best: "We are well aware that it's a good thing these folks have real jobs."

Police investigate stabbing after pair met on dating app


ATLANTA (WXIA) -- A man who was stabbed multiple times is telling Atlanta police that he had just met his attacker on an online dating app.

The victim is going to be okay.

It was three weeks ago – September 22.

The two ended up at the Defoors Glen condominium complex in northwest Atlanta. Sherry Arria had just come home and saw the victim outside, leaning on a neighbor's car.

"And he had the towels on him 'cause he got stabbed," she said -- multiple stab wounds to his upper body.

So what happened?

The man, in his mid 30s, told Atlanta Police he had been on the dating app Tinder and met someone – a man named Cedric. They decided to meet in person at a McDonald's on Barrett Parkway. Then the man drove Cedric to Atlanta, to a friend's condo at Defoors Glen.
