Apple Fire, Cherry Valley update: 20,516 acres scorched, 7,800 ordered to evacuate

More than a thousand Southern California firefighters and multiple aircraft were working Sunday morning to battle the Apple Fire near Beaumont, which has spread to more than 20,000 acres, sent smoke drifting to Arizona and continues to threaten thousands of homes in Riverside and San Bernardino counties.
The massive blaze, which began Friday evening as two smaller fires that eventually merged, has continued to grow overnight— fed by low humidity, a slight breeze, thick vegetation and triple-digit temperatures. (Desert Sun News)
