    Fire blight produces scattered scorching of whole twigs including wood, with non-infested shoots remaining normal-looking. Your tree has turned all yellow, indicating there is some kind of systemic problem that is leading to scorching of leaves on extremities. Looks quite like a yellow-leaved, sunburn prone variant of another kind of plant might at this time of the year in a full sun location.
