During this same series of bushfires, this typewriter was damaged when musician and actor Philip Hine's home in Wytaliba was destroyed almost exactly a year ago. Parts of his car melted.
California, of course, has suffered through successive summers of similar bushfire damage. These vintage typewriters were on the shelves of a store hit by the Camp Fire in Paradise north of Sacramento in November 2018. The typewriter below was lost along with lives in the Coffey Park area of Santa Rosa in October 2017.
