   Officials at the Road to Tara Museum are reporting a fire that took place within a neighboring facility in Henry County, GA. The blaze was centered in the upper level of a storage unit. Directly below were units housing collectible posters from the 1939 premier of Gone With the Wind, promotional paintings, and other memorabilia. Firefighters are concerned about possible fire, smoke or water damage to all of the units.

   The event center museum, located just outside of Atlanta in Jonesboro, currently carries the most valuable artifacts in the collection, including costumes, a signed first-edition copy of the Margaret Mitchell-novel, and an original motion picture script. These prized possessions were not affected by the fire.

   Firefighters battled the blaze for several hours, and, fortunately, no one was injured. Our thoughts go out to the folks in the area.
