This happened to my plum tree this year - just a young tree - last year was its first time to bear.
The leaves all turned black and fell off.
I had a nearby apple tree develop some fire blight last year, but I trimmed the affected branches and burned them as I read I should do, and disinfected the trimming tools.
I don't think the fire blight spreads to cherry or plum trees?
The whole tree appears to be dead now. I really hate that as it was coming along as a nice little tree.
