Arsonist targets Mrs. Doubtfire house in San Francisco

Police in San Francisco are investigating an arson at the home featured in the 1993 movie Mrs. Doubtfire.

The fire started at 8 p.m. in the Pacific Heights neighborhood of the city, USA Today reports. The homeowner smelled smoke and discovered the doormat was on fire, a police spokesman said, and quickly put out the flames. NBC News says that the home is owned by a doctor who is a pioneer in facial feminization surgeries, but a police official said the incident does not appear to be a hate crime. The house was also in the news last year, when fans of Robin Williams left flowers there upon his death.
