The Apple Fire burning east of Los Angeles grew to over 26,000 acres on August 3, and was just 7 percent contained.
Footage posted by @travelerhacker on Instagram shows smoke clouds rising above the fire, as seen from Banning.
CAL Fire said the fire was caused by burning carbon emitted from a diesel vehicle’s malfunctioning engine.
Inciweb information said five structures had been destroyed by August 3 and that the fire was spreading north across the head of the Mill Creek Canyon, and east into the San Gorgonio Wilderness. Credit: @travelerhacker via Storyful
