Filed Under: Bringing New Meaning to the Term “Fired.”
She was JUST released from V103 a couple of months ago AND when she was released the first time, HER house suspiciously caught on fire too…. she was reportedly “outÃ‚ of town” the first time and the police investigation cleared her but can you say “case reopened.”
Former Atlanta radio personality Porsche Foxx is one of two people arson investigators want to question in connection with a suspicious fire that damaged three townhomes Tuesday morning in south Fulton County.
The fire started in the Mallory Park Townhomes in the 100 block of Bagby Court in Union City about 2:30 a.m. One unit was destroyed and two others suffered heavy damage.
One resident suffered second-degree burns.
State and Fulton County arson investigators named Foxx, whose real name is Stephanie Calhoun, and Tony Matthews as “persons of interest” in the case. Matthews’ mother was the woman injured in the fire and accused Foxx of setting the fire, according to Fulton County fire department officials.
Cyrus Elliot said he heard people outside his bedroom window, looked to see another unit on fire and began knocking on neighbor’s doors to get them out. “We had one adult female transported from the scene with second-degree burns to her left arm,” said Keith Padgett, Fulton County fire marshal.
The injured woman was taken to Grady Memorial Hospital. In November Foxx was fired from radio station V-103 for the second time in four years. Foxx was a popular afternoon Radio DJ at V-103 until the station fired her after a very public DUI arrest in late 2004. She pleaded guilty to the charge in summer 2005, receiving community service, probation and a stint in alcohol rehab. She was rehired in late 2007.
