  • The damage and firefighting costs topped $8 million

Authorities had already revealed the eye-rolling reason behind the massive 2017 wildfire: a Border Patrol agent's gender reveal party - with a guest appearance by the explosive Tannerite - that went wrong in a flash.

Time reported that in 2017, Dennis Dickey, a border patrol agent from Arizona, was excited at welcoming a new baby into his family and made a decision to have an unforgettable gender reveal.

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.

The explosion caused the surrounding dry grass to catch on fire.

A male voice in a panicked voice twice shouts "Start packing up!" He also has to pay more than $8 million in restitution.

The video shows how Dickey started the fire. The Arizona Daily Star obtained the video below Monday from the U.S. Forest Service through the Freedom of Information Act. He added: "I feel absolutely disgusting about it". Dickey said starting the fire, "was one of the worst days of my life".

The resulting inferno burned through 47,000 acres and caused $8Million in Damages.

"I feel absolutely terrible about it", Dickey told the Arizona Daily Star, "It was probably one of the worst days of my life". When the gator snapped its jaws, the watermelon exploded, spilling blue Jell-O onto the grass.

It quickly spread to the Coronado National Forest.

In September, Dickey pleaded to a misdemeanor violation of US Forest Service regulations and was sentenced to five years' probation according to CNN.
