Lots of air craft going over my house. Sounds like it’s on the east side of Oak Glen Road.

Not a sight you want to see with the heat and wind.

Not much wind on my side. Looks like smoke is going straight up.

Visible here in orange county as well. Hope everyone stays safe. Fire season is not fun.

Thats just wrong. Senseless act, with so many repercussions. Property loss, mental anguish, and God forbid death.

I could smell it and I looked up i could see the pyrocumulus cloud.

Damn. Hope it’s OK. One of my dorkier pursuits is picking apples over there in the fall with my wife and making apple pie. Great day trip.

Thank God the wind is blowing the other way. They’ve been dropping retardant since 11:00. This morning there was nothing. Winds picked up and all hell broke loose. People lost houses and structures. Dark black smoke would go up.

I’m sure I’ll be there Monday when I go back in.

I’m surprised you got any days off. I’ve been off for 9 days and go back Monday also. I’m Expecting the force hire phone call Wednesday night. We have 10 engines there, and I’m guessing the OES engines too

Yea, I was up at Apple last month messing with the lockers.
Not my choice for days off, I’ve been off for 14 days.

The Apple Fire burning in the San Bernardino Mountains north of Beaumont was sparked by a vehicle malfunction, authorities announced Monday.


Cal Fire investigators determined that a diesel-vehicle emitting burning carbon from the exhaust system malfunctioned, igniting the massive inferno Friday evening. That conclusion was drawn from multiply independent witnesses, as well as corroborating physical evidence, according to a statement from the Riverside County Fire Department.
