A Laurel Canyon home once inhabited by Jim Morrison was damaged in one of the 19 overnight arson attacks that plagued Hollywood and West Hollywood early Friday morning, according to the Los Angeles Times.

The fire — at 8021 Rothdell Trail in Hollywood — broke out at 1:20 a.m. in a nearby car, then spread to the house.

Morrison lived in the 1922 Hollywood home with his girlfriend Pamela Courson. It's where he wrote the Doors album "Waiting for the Sun" and portions of "The Soft Parade."
