Gender Reveal Party Ignites Fire, Destroys More Than 45000 Acres

Boy or girl? Either way, an Arizona couple sure wasn't expecting a fire.

Video of a U.S. Border Patrol agent's gender-reveal party explosion that sparked Arizona's Sawmill Fire a year ago was released by the U.S. Forest Service on Monday.

As a gunshot rings out - apparently fired by expectant father and United States border patrol agent Dennis Dickey - the target explodes in a blue cloud, igniting the surrounding area in flames.

Dennis Dickey, 37, and his wife Rita, planned to reveal the sex of their baby to friends and relatives by setting off an explosive device filled with coloured powder - blue to indicate a boy.

"Start packing up!" a man yells off camera. 800 fire fighters were involved in extinguishing the blaze, which was put out about a week after it ignited on April 23.

The video was released following a Freedom of Information Act request made by NBC News affiliate KVOA.

He also agreed to conduct a public service announcement with the U.S. Forest Service about the cause of the fire.

One of the commenters where the video is posted on YouTube, wrote, "I feel bad for the poor baby boy who's inheriting those genes".

A video released Monday by the U.S. Forest Service shows the target explode after being hit with gunfire, sending a blue substance into the air. The fire caused $8 million in damages.

Dickey will pay $220,000 in restitution for the fire.

"It was a complete accident, " the Arizona Daily Star quoted Dickey as saying the day he pleaded guilty in the case.
