  • The damage and firefighting costs topped $8 million

A video has emerged showing how a US Border Patrol agent's gender-reveal party sparked a devastating wildfire that caused damage estimated at $8.2 million (R114m). Oh, and in case you're wondering, it's a boy.

As part of their reveal celebrations, Dickey was to shoot at a target that was filled with powder, which would either burst and show blue (for a boy) or pink (for a girl) - sounds straightforward enough, doesn't it?

Video has emerged of the moment a border patrol agent's explosive gender-reveal party stunt sparked a massive wildfire in Arizona previous year. The grass around the explosive package can be seen burning at the end of the video.

Dickey reported the fire immediately and admitted to starting it. Then there's a enormous explosion and, nearly immediately, a fire starts to ripple through the dried grass.

Speaking in court, he told the judge: "It was a complete accident".

"I feel absolutely awful about it".

The fire burned for nearly two weeks. He's now been sentenced to 5 years probation.

The wildfire would spread over 47,000 acres of land and cost more than $8 million in damage.

Video released by the U.S. Forest Service on Monday shows how an explosion at a gender reveal party caused a devastating wildfire in Arizona past year.
