CNN has fired Kathy Griffin from their annual New Year’s Eve broadcast, which she’s co-hosted with Anderson Cooper for a decade. The announcement came just one day after the comedian posed for photographer Tyler Shields with a replica of the severed head of Donald Trump.

Burglars who attempted to break into an ATM in Washington using a blowtorch ended up accidentally setting the cash inside the machine on fire in the process. Police in Everett shared a photo of the charred ATM outside Coastal Community Bank after the thieves had their haul destroyed by their own flames. Aaron Snell of the Everett Police Department said the would-be burglars apparently attempted to burn through the exterior of the machine in order to access the cash box, but they did not manage to successfully collect any bills from the failed heist after the flames burned the cash. Police were able to identify the two suspects, and said surveillance video shows one of the men even tried to urinate on the flames after the money inside caught on fire.
