California wildfires burn home of 'Peanuts' creator Charles Schulz to the ground

13 Octobre 2017

The family home of Charles M. Schulz, the man who created "Peanuts", burned to the ground in California's wildfires earlier this week, a family member has confirmed.

Monte Schulz told The Mercury News in San Jose that Jean Schulz is now staying with family. Schulz was battling colon cancer.

The Charles M. Schulz Museum and Research Center is located in the city, which stores many of his illustrations, and celebrates the cartoonist and his characters, including Charlie Brown and Snoopy.

Schulz's widow, Jean, 78, escaped from the hillside home in Santa Rosa about 2 a.m. Monday before it was engulfed in flames, her stepson Monte Schulz said. "She is energetic and pragmatic and very tough".

The world's largest collection of Schulz's artwork, the "Peanuts" comic strips and other memorabilia is now safe at the Charles M. Schulz Museum and Research Center in Santa Rosa.

"The things that they lost in there are irreplaceable", said Monte Schulz.

He said his brother, Craig, also lost his home in the fires.

The auction, Datar told the court on Thursday, failed after Sahara wrote to police to take over the administration of the project. This was to make sure that the auction process did not face any kind of obstruction in the future.

The home of the world's largest collection of "Peanuts" strips in the world is now closed, according to the museum's website, because the fires in the area knocked out its electricity.

The museum was unharmed in the wildfires, said Tracey Pugh, the museum media relations director. "There's no fire around it and everything is safe". "It's the house he died in", said Monte.

Another member of the Schulz family were also affected by the wildfires this week.

There are "Peanuts" character sculptures in downtown Santa Rosa that are reportedly still standing and have been untouched by the fires. "Obviously that's all gone".

Charles Schulz was born in Minneapolis and moved his first wife and family to Sonoma County in 1958, building a house and studio in Sebastopol.

"It's sad. It's erased". "Everything that was in there, every connection we had to dad vis a vis that house, is gone now".
