Japanese maple branches dying

Baldwin Park, United States

The top branches of my Japanese Maple (fireglow) keep dying. The leaves grow out, turn red then crinkle up and die. Then the main branches die also. This happens before it gets very hot. The rest of the tree looks fine to me. Itís been in the ground for about 2 years. Iím in S California.
Any ideas ?

I've lost two to freezing weather, but I'm in Wisconsin. Don't have a clue about whether they thrive in heat. Have you looked up diseases, if they are prone to certain kinds or whether extreme heat is bad for them? Good luck
