Preventing fireplace accidents with Tipman Tim

Posted: Updated:
ATLANTA -

A fireplace is a great thing to have, but it can also be very dangerous and cost you a lot of extra money if you don't take some precautions.

Tipman Tim, otherwise known as Tim Thompson, shows us how to take those precautions at midtown Atlanta's historic mansion, Rhodes Hall.

Rhodes Hall is the headquarters of the Georgia Trust for Historic Preservation. On May 4 they're hosting a Home Owners Workshop from 9:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. It's for homeowners and homebuyers who are interested in either purchasing an older home, or hiring a professional to make repairs, or do-it-yourselfers wanting to make repairs or improvements themselves.

The grounds of Rhodes Hall will be filled with vendor displays offering information on all aspects of homeownership. Inside, seminars, lectures and demonstrations will be offered simultaneously on the half-hour, allowing attendees to participate in numerous sessions.

    I think this is what many of us assume about outlet mall shopping -- we get rock bottom prices on everything from clothes to housewares on brand names that are either leftovers from last year or this year's overstock. Well, it's not quite like that.
