Candles turn 100th birthday cake into an inferno!

Posted: Updated:

Louisville, Ky. (WDRB) -- Celebrating a 100th birthday is rare. It's even more rare to become an internet sensation at that age.

We get the feeling this video might do just that.  WDRB Photojournalist Sarah Haeberle's grandmother Catherine turned 100 on Tuesday.

Reporter Bennett Haeberle narrates the amateur video that had everyone in our newsroom smiling.  As relatives walked  across the kitchen with 100 candles on an ice cream cake.  Catherine Grote did her best to blow out the candles. But she needed a little help to extinguish the flames and fan away the smoke.

The new centarian lives outside Cincinnati. She credits vegetable juice with keeping her fit.
