Home of 'Peanuts' cartoonist Charles Schulz destroyed in fire


SANTA ROSA, Calif. - California's deadly wildfires have claimed the home of 'Peanuts' creator Charles Schulz, according to officials.

Fortunately, they said his widow was able to escape the flames.

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

Schulz says he's been told the home where his famous cartoonist father died and all the memorabilia in it are gone.

However, most of his father's original artwork is in the Charles M. Schulz Museum in Santa Rosa, and so far, officials said the flames have not reached the museum.
