It is now six miles from cabins in the hills above des- ert communities of Hesperia and Apple Valley. The mountain community of Cedar Springs is only two miles from the flames. Civil Defense pumper trucks from 10 cities in I.os Angeles and Orange counties were rushed to the town to join eight al- ready on guard there. t MORE THAN 10 square miles of watershed and tim- ber, acres, have been consumed by the fire since it started Sunday two miles north of here.
