California wildfire destroys 'Peanuts' creator Charles M Schulz's house

Charles Schulz's widow Jean was able to escape the wildfires

The home of Charles Schulz, the late American cartoonist famous for creating the comic strip Peanuts, was destroyed in the California wildfires that broke out last weekend, his son, Monte Schulz, confirmed.

Schulz's son, Monte Schulz, says a fire on Monday torched the Santa Rosa homes of his stepmother, 78-year-old Jean Schulz, and his brother, Craig Schulz.

Charles Schulz' widow, Jean Schulz, during the installation of a portrait of Schulz at the National Portrait Gallery in Washington in 2010.

"But there were a lot of Peanuts things in the house", Monte Schulz told the Mercury News. The museum, which houses most of the original "Peanuts" art and much memorabilia, announced Thursday that it will close until further notice because of a lack of power, while also noting that the building was spared from damage.

Schulz lived at that residence, which was built in the "70s, until his death in 2000". The airport in Santa Rosa even bears his name - the Charles M. Schulz-Sonoma County Airport - and features bronze sculptures of iconic "Peanuts" characters.

More than 30 people have died in California's deadliest series of wildfires in 80 years, and hundreds of people are still missing.

But fierce winds are expected to return across much of the state as early as Friday night, and a force of 8000 firefighters in Northern California are racing to reinforce and extend buffer lines before then, officials said.
