The Apple Fire was a wildfire that burned during the 2020 California wildfire season in Cherry Valley south of Oak Glen and north of Beaumont and Banning in Riverside County, California in the United States. The fire ignited on Friday, 31 July 2020 as three separate smaller blazes within the rural canyons along Oak Glen Road before merging and rapidly expanding to 1,900 acres (769 ha), destroying at least one home and two outbuildings in the Cherry Valley area. It covered at least 33,424 acres (13,526 ha) and created a plume of smoke so massive that it generated its own winds. The fire was sparked by a diesel-burning vehicle that emitted burning carbon.
