7:38 am
how fast another fire, this time started by a blanket tossed on to a candle, can spread. >> all right. let's go. we're breathing smoke. come on. >> reporter: the fire fueled by a room filled with petroleum-based products like the cushion stuffing and wide screen tv which ul says can burn up to six types faster than natural materials. and every second counts, because ul's research shows you have just three minutes to get out. so what can you and your family do to stay safe? >> most candle fires happen because people put them too close to normal household items. >> reporter: experts say keep candles at least a foot away from other objects. keep loose clothing and hair away. and never leave a burning candle unattended. and luckily our firefighter brian is standing by here. he'll be able to put this fire out literally in just a couple of seconds. but you can imagine if this was your home, with all those synthetic materials we have, how quickly things will go up in flames.

[ laughs ] see what i did there? i sure had a lot on my mind when i got out of the hospital after a dvt blood clot. what about my family? my li'l buddy? and what if this happened again? i was given warfarin in the hospital but i wondered if this was the right treatment for me. then my doctor told me about eliquis. eliquis treats dvt and pe blood clots and reduces the risk of them happening again. not only does eliquis treat dvt and pe blood clots, but eliquis also had significantly less major bleeding than the standard treatment. knowing eliquis had both... turned around my thinking. don't stop eliquis unless your doctor tells you to.
7:41 am
eliquis can cause serious and in rare cases fatal bleeding. don't take eliquis if you have an artificial heart valve or abnormal bleeding. if you had a spinal injection while on eliquis call your doctor right away if you have tingling, numbness, or muscle weakness. while taking eliquis, you may bruise more easily... and it may take longer than usual for bleeding to stop. seek immediate medical care for sudden signs of bleeding, like unusual bruising. eliquis may increase your bleeding risk if you take certain medicines. tell your doctor about all planned medical or dental procedures. eliquis treats dvt & pe blood clots. plus had less major bleeding. both made switching to eliquis right for me.

welcome back. we have a story that really surprised us. a third grader diagnosed wit breast cancer. 8-year-old chrissy turner has a very rare form of the disease and abc's dr. jennifer ashton has her story. >> reporter: she's an enthusiastic artist and a loving little sister. >> hi,i,rianna. >> reporter: now 8-year-old chrissy turner is fighting a devastating disease normally only faced by adults. >> i was kind of scared toind of figure out what it was. >> reporter: in october chrissy came to her parents with a lump in her chest. after a series of tests, doctors diagnosed a rare form of breast cancer called secretory y carcinomom the findingsgsa huge blow to the whole family.
8:06 am
>> i was in shock. no child should ever have to go through cancer, and then it hits your family. it hits yoyo little one. i'i'sorry. it's devastating. >> it's been really hard emotionally. mentally everyone has been broken down. >> reporter: secretory carcinoma accounts for less than 0.15% of breast cancers and is the rarest form of the disease. dr. brian bucher is part of the team treating chrissy. >> it is very treatable. chrissy had to undergo a simple masasctomy to remove all of the remaining breast tissue to prevent this cancer from coming back. >> reporter: the turner family is no stranger to cancer. mom is a cervical cancer survivor and dad was diagnosed with non-hodgkin's lymphoma in 2008. >> it's a fear that you always have. >> reporter: chrissy's cancer is a shock. >> we're going to fight it as a family. we're going to be there for you no matter what.
8:07 am
>> i hope that i fight ioff. >> and dr. ashton joins us now. chrissy is clearly a fighter. thank goodness this is treatable. >> yeah, and it's incredibly rare, george. that's the take home message. there are isolated reports in the literature. youngest patient with this type of cancer, just 3 years old, the oldest, 87. generally the prognosis is good. >> so we can't emphasize it enough, it's very rare but it's going to frighten a lot of parents. what should they be paying attention to? >> when you talk about breast development in a young girl, there are a couple of things the parents should know about. number one, any dramatic changes in the breast or breast development before the age of 8. the key thing is change e one breast versus the other. that would be a concerning sign but, remember, there are other things that affect the breast that aren't cancer, trauma, infection, benign cysts. after a physical e em with the child's pediatrician, the next step is breast ultrasound and then generally a referral to a breast specialist but those are the overall warnings. >> those are the overall warning signs but, again, very, very rare. >> it's incredibib rare.
8:08 am
>> jen ashton, thanks very much. let's go over to michael. all right, thanks, george. part one of the epic "dancing with the stars" two-night finale kicked off with a big bang last night. last night the remaining four couples put it all on the line hoping to take home that mirrorball, but only three remain. shut up and dance with me >> here we go, one, two, one, two,o,hree. >> reporter: the final four, showing off their fantastic freestyles monday night. reporter: but it wau bindi versus the backstreet boy. hey >> reporter: tied at the top of the leaderboard that had everyone talking. arger than life >> reporter: nick carter's "larger than life"reestyle. >> the most incredible freaking awesome backstreet boy. >> reporter: and bindi with a show-stopping quick step. >> you, my dear, are the energizer bunny. >> reporter: her freretyle dance bringing the audience to tears with an emotional tribute to her dad. >> you touched everybody's soul.

8:10 am
i think she pulled on everyone's heart strings and saw her journey and she's rike the ninist person in the world. >> and you know it was like a showstopping moment because she didn't know the picture of her dad was going to show up. and what did you think about that? i thought that was really sweet. >> i saw her get so emotional. d sometes when you're in te dance and in the moment of that audience, it can be overwhelming but there was something more to it than that and realizing after that it was because she didn't know that picture was going to go up. it just mama sense and you felt it even more. >> and the judges called alek's freestyle a dance for the ages. now, were you surprised by the freestyle? >> yeah -- well, i was surprised he was even in the finals. >> really? >> i was so excited. i didn't think he would get to the finals. he was kind of in my mind the meat of my season like something that -- >> you described him as that? >> yes. i think he's done an amazing job and i was -- i'm so happy that he made it, and i definitely
8:11 am
think his freestyle was s e that i'll remember forever. no one has done it like an army obstacle course. it was super cool. >> now, what about nick? nick brought back a little bit of the backstreet boys. and i'm ray big backstreet boys fan. what did you think about his freestyle? >> me too. listen, the guy knows how to move. i think he was great. i want a little bit more from nick even though he killed his routine but, you know, bindi, she stole my heart. >> and carlos, carlos made it a family affair, brought out his wife, something we've never seen before. >> and paula deen. >> yeah. yeah, and a couple of the other r ntestants from the show that season and that, i think, is the heart of carlos. i loved what he did and he killed his routine, as well. he did such a good job and i love the connection that he had with his wife and he said even their relationship grew on the show because you can see because of the competition could end up being strife or a bigger connection. >> i'm sure if there was strife at home he wouldn't have it on

8:13 am
back, in the past. >> yeah, they still got it. still got it. i loved all the "rocky" movies and loved this one too, watched it the other night, "creed," and it seems like the natural evolution for "rocky." >> what made it so extraordinary because of this journey that rocky takes, it was presented by a man in his late 20s or 27 ars old, who just bebeme fixated on extending the story but also bringing in a new character, creed, who kindndf speaks to what's happening today more like the millennials whereas rocky was the voice of the '70s and '80s, this fellow is speaking about the problems and issues that face younger people today. >> and so let's bring people up to speed. creed, of course is the son of -- >> apollo creed, who is my friend, mentor and the fellow who changed my life, and so he
