Fire might have claimed 'Gone with the Wind' items

STOCKBRIDGE, Ga. (AP) -- A museum official says valuable memorabilia from the classic film `Gone with the Wind' was being kept in a storage facility that was heavily damaged by fire.

Frenda Turner of the Road to Tara Museum says that she fears much of the collection was lost to flames or water damage.

Turner said items stored there included "highly, highly collectable" Gone With the Wind memorabilia not currently on display at the Jonesboro museum. She said the items included large poster-type boards that were used at the 1939 premier.

Henry County Fire Capt. Sabrina Puckett says firefighters battled the blaze for several hours overnight at Hudson Self Storage on Hudson Bridge Road in Henry County, south of Atlanta. Fire officials said one person was injured in the blaze.
