Fire officials blame a malfunctioning diesel vehicle for starting a wildfire east of Los Angeles that has consumed more than 42 square miles of brush and timber since Friday evening. As of Monday night, the Apple Fire was only 7 percent contained. Officials issued evacuation orders and advisories for about 2,500 homes in Riverside and San Bernardino counties. In Northern California, a wildfire that started on Sunday spread quickly, burning several homes in Colusa County.
