The iconic Mrs. Doubtfire house which is located in San Francisco was struck by an arsonist late on Monday. Made famous by the comedy, the property has served as a memorial for the late Robin Williams since his death last year. Damage was limited, as the owner was able to put the fire out before it got out of control.
The incident happened at 8:00 pm on Monday. The owner, a doctor, believes the fire was started by a disgruntled patient. Fire officials believe the arsonist doused the doormat in a flammable liquid before igniting it on fire.
Before his death, Robin Williams was planning a return as Daniel Hillard, an actor and divorcee who disguises himself as a female housekeeper to spend time with his children held in custody by his former wife. The location was likely to be used again in Mrs. Doubtfire 2, but the project, of course, was put on hold at the time of the comedian's death.
Many speculate that the house may one day be turned into a museum in honor of Robin Williams. The Astoria house seen in The Goonies is another iconic location that is visited on a daily basis, and the A Christmas Story house located in Ohio has been turned into a tourist attraction. There are no plans at this time, though, as the Mrs. Doubtfire is privately owned. You can see the house utilized in this tribute clip:
