Firefighters from Orange County firefighting agencies have been deployed to help fight the Apple fire in Oak Glen in Riverside County.
Anaheim Fire and Rescue and Orange County Fire Authority – which provides fire and paramedic service to Garden Grove, Stanton and Westminster and other cities – are among other organizations lending assistance to fight the blaze.
Anaheim sent mutual aid in the form of five pieces of equipment along with a battalion chief to fight the blaze, which exceeds 700 acres.
OCFA sent a strike team of five engines and a strike team leader to assist Cal Fire and Riverside County firefighters. Additionally, the agency dispatched a “hand crew” of wild land firefighters to assist.
