VIA AJC.com: Fulton County fire investigators Tuesday were looking for radio personality Porsche Foxx in connection with an an early-morning fire that destroyed a Union City town home.
One woman was taken to Grady Memorial Hospital for treatment of a second-degree arm burn following the 2:30 a.m. blaze at the Mallory Park complex on Bagby Court off Flat Shoals Road, said Kieth Padgett, chief fire marshal for the Fulton County Fire Department.
Padgett said Tuesday afternoon that while the cause of the blaze had not been pinned down, the fire was “suspicious.”
Through interviews with the injured woman and neighbors, investigators “learned that two people were there at the scene that left the scene, that we need to talk with.”
One, Tony Matthews, also lived in the town home, and the other, Foxx, was visiting the home when the fire broke out early Tuesday, according to Padgett.
“These are not suspects, they’re just people we would like to speak with,” Padgett said.
Foxx, whose real name is Stephanie Calhoun, was a popular afternoon DJ at V-103 until the station fired her after a 2004 DUI arrest. She pleaded guilty to the charge in 2005, and was re-hired by V-103 in 2007.
She was fired by the station again last November.
Three years ago, Foxx’s home in the upscale Regency neighborhood off Campbellton Road in south Fulton was destroyed by a fire that investigators later determined may have been caused by an unattended candle.
Padgett asked that anyone with information on the whereabouts of Matthews or Foxx call his office at 404-612-8907
