Washington Post: ‘Peanuts’ creator Charles Schulz’s home burns down in Santa Rosa fire

The homes of many people in Santa Rosa, including PEANUTS creator Charles Schulz and my friend, the award-winning graphic novelist Brian Fies, burned down due to the wildfires in the area. I am glad to let you know that the people -- Jean Schulz, her son, Brian and his family (including their cat and dog) are safe.

But their homes, along with many personal items are now gone.

Michael Cavna has the story about the Schulz home here.

His drawing board and, from what I understand, all of his significant original work was elsewhere. Most was at the Charles M. Schulz Museum, also located in Santa Rosa. The Museum was spared, as was his iconic skating rink there.
