The “Apple Fire”, which would have started as three distinct flames, broke out on Friday afternoon and continues to burn three days later.Flames roared overnight in the hillside and in the communities of Cherry Valley, Banning and the San Bernardino National Forest.

“The fire burned north of us for a while and eventually it made its way here,” a local resident told CBS Los Angeles.
