Footage of explosive gender reveal party that sparked Arizona wildfire released

The U.S. Forest Service has released video showing an off-duty Border Patrol agent's gender-reveal party explosion that caused a massive wildfire previous year in Arizona.

Apparently he loaded the gender-revealing target with too much of the substance, however, as it exploded and spewed fire on the dried-out grasslands below, to the horror of onlookers. In addition, Dickey has to pay $8 million in damages. Expectant parents throw such parties to tell family and friends the gender of their baby.

The words "boy" and "girl" can be seen on the target before it explodes.

At the end of the video, a man can be heard yelling twice for people to, "Start packing up". Authorities said the so-called "Sawmill Fire" damaged more than 45,000 acres of land in April 2017.

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". Then there's a enormous explosion and, nearly immediately, a fire starts to ripple through the dried grass. "Dickey also agreed to make an initial payment of $100,000 toward the restitution judgement and monthly payments thereafter".

Moments after the shot lands, the target explodes and the nearby brush catches fire.

Dickey must serve five years' probation and make a public announcement about the cause of the fire, under the conditions of his plea agreement.
