Charles Schulz, ‘Peanuts’ creator’s home burns down in California fires
(CNN) The home of Charles Schulz, the creator of the “Peanuts” comic strip, was lost in the wildfires that are ravaging Northern California this week, his son Monte Schulz said.
Schulz’s widow Jean, 78, was evacuated from their split-level home in Santa Rosa on Monday quickly prior to the fire minimized it to rubble, Monte Schulz informed CNN. She is safe and sticking with family, he stated.
” The important things that they lost in there are irreplaceable,” said Monte Schulz. “It’s not just the memorabilia. It’s that life that my stepmother had with him. It’s totally gone.”
Charles and Jean Schulz moved into their hillside home in Santa Rosa in the late 1970’s, his child stated. The cartoonist passed away in his home in 2000.

The Sonoma County Airport is named after him and brings a logo design of Snoopy flying while sitting on top of his canine house.
The Charles M. Schulz Museum and Research Center is located in the city, which shops much of his illustrations, and celebrates the cartoonist and his characters, consisting of Charlie Brown and Snoopy.
The museum was unharmed in the wildfires, said Tracey Pugh, the museum media relations director. However it is closed due to an absence of power and there is no set date for re-opening the center.
