Evacuations Ordered as Apple Fire Grows in Southern California

Evacuation orders were issued for several communities in southern California as the Apple Fire grew to more than 20,500 acres by Sunday, August 2, according to fire officials. The fire in San Bernardino County has burned more than 20,516 acres with zero containment, according to the San Bernardino National Forest’s report. Officials said steep and rugged terrain has hindered firefighters’ access to the blaze. Evacuation orders were issued for communities in Riverside County and San Bernardino County, the report said. This video, filmed by local resident Kimberly Clarke, shows the Apple Fire’s thick column of smoke from Yucaipa in San Bernardino County. “Fire continues to march up the mountain above Oak Glen – very scary and the air units are trying their hardest to attack it,” Clarke said on Twitter.
