Gender Reveal Goes Wrong When Explosives Cause Arizona Forest Fire

Dennis Dickey started a $8.2 million fire at a gender reveal party

He was holding an off duty party to celebrate his wife's pregnancy at which the gender of his baby was revealed.

The video was released following a Freedom of Information Act request made by NBC News affiliate KVOA. The Associated Press received the video from the Forest Service on Tuesday. Except added to the powder was a substance called Tannerite, which is legal, but as we can all now see, is also very explosive. He reported the fire immediately to law enforcement on April 23, 2017 and was co-operative in the Forest Service investigation, authorities said.

The 2017 fire near Green Valley burned 73 square miles (190 square kilometres) of state and federal land.

"I feel absolutely terrible about it". He also will be on probation for the next five years and will participate in a public service announcement for the Forest Service.

"It was a complete accident", Dickey told a judge on Friday. "It was probably one of the worst days of my life". When the target is hit, a flash of blue powder briefly appears before an explosion takes over the area, lighting the Sawmill Fire.

An elaborate gender reveal caused $11 million in damages.

Fire officials said gusty winds and the broken topography helped push the growth of the blaze. In the plea agreement, Dickey agreed to pay $220,000 in restitution, starting with $100,000 at his sentencing in October, and an additional $500 a month for the next 20 years. Well, the US Forest Service has now released footage from the scene.
