(WTNH)– The house where Mrs. Doubtfire lived in the 1993 movie, starring the late Robin Williams, was set on fire earlier this week.

The house isn’t a Hollywood movie set but instead a real home in San Francisco and a 79-year-old plastic surgeon, Dr. Douglas K. Ousterhout,  actually uses it for his practice. Police say on Monday night around 8 p.m. someone lit two small blazes outside the home.  Police believe a disgruntled former patient poured gas on the doormat and side of the garage and lit them on fire. robin williams

After Williams committed suicide in August, hundreds of people left notes and flowers at the home. Fans of “Mrs. Doubtfire” and the actor are outraged over the arson.

“I can’t believe that it’s an iconic house, you don’t do something like that, its disgusting,” said Kate Lane, Tourise .

Police haven’t identified the suspect but describe her as a woman in her forties. Ousterhout specializes in facial feminization for transgendered woman.
