Who invented the wood fireplace?
The wood fireplace goes back thousands of years and no one knows who invented it. Benjamin Franklin invented a particular kind of stove (not a fireplace) that was more effective and efficient than a fireplace in warming a room and in fuel consumption. The Franklin Stove was also easier and safer to use for cooking than a fireplace was.

If a gas fireplace is on and the electricity goes out will the fireplace continue to work?
It really all depends on the type of Fireplace you have. Fireplaces usually run on a pilot with a thermocouple or thermopile. These produce their own milivolts to run the gas valve. These type of fireplaces do not need power to ignite. If the fireplace's on/off switch is a remote that runs off of batteries or is a switch on the faceplate of the fireplace, then this fireplace should work with no power. Most fireplaces have a blower that circulates the warm air it generates. This fan would be running on 120v from the street and would not work when the power goes out. You may still have a flame on, but all the heat it generates is going out the stack. Other fireplaces have no fan and are mainly for looks. You may have a fireplace that is dependent on the 120volts and will do nothing. Check the operation manual on your fireplace.
