Video Shows Explosion At U.S. Border Patrol Agent's Gender-Reveal Party That Sparked An Arizona Wildfire

Video shows explosion at border agent's gender-reveal party that sparked an Arizona wildfire which burned 47,000 acres, cost $8.2m to extinguish and involved nearly 800 firefighters

Video has emerged of the moment a U.S. Border Patrol agent's gender reveal party sparked an Arizona wildfire that burned 47,000 acres and caused $8.2million worth of damage. Dennis Dickey, 37, pleaded guilty last month to a misdemeanor violation for starting the Sawmill Fire near Green Valley in April 2017. The off-duty border agent ignited the blaze by firing a rifle filled with Tennerite, which is a highly explosive substance, at a target at his wife Rita's gender reveal party. Footage of the incident, which was only released by the U.S. Forest Service on Monday, shows the words 'Boy' and 'Girl' written across the target. Source
