PITTSBURG ,TX (KLTV)-  An East Texas woman had a smoking hot birthday today, literally.

Sunday, Pittsburg firefighters presented "Mojiaree Richardson" with a hundred-candle birthday cake.

The city of Pittsburg even made Mojiaree's hundredth birthday more special by declaring today her day in Pittsburg. Richardson was born in LaFayette Texas and has lived in East Texas all her life. Though Mojiaree never had any children she says her life has been a thrill.

 "My folks, my family, my friends, they all let me know they like me. I'd like to hug everyone of them and tell them I love them. I've had a good life and I'm still here ready to go," says Richardson as she laughs.

To cap off Ms. Mojiaree's 100th birthday celebration, she was driven home from her birthday party in a Rolls-Royce.
