Video shows gender reveal explosion that started an Arizona wildfire

The U.S. Forest Service has recently released video footage of the moment an off-duty Border Patrol agent started a wildfire in Arizona in April 2017.

As a gunshot rings out - apparently fired by expectant father and U.S. border patrol agent Dennis Dickey - the target explodes in a blue cloud, igniting the surrounding area in flames. While the target exploded as planned to reveal blue smoke, it also ignited nearby dry foliage, in a fire that would ultimately force hundreds of people to evacuate from their homes and caused some $8 million dollars in damages and fire suppression costs.

In the clip, as the grass catches fire, a man can be heart shouting: "Start packing up".

According to KGUN, Dickey immediately reported the fire to law enforcement, cooperated with the investigation and admitted that he started the blaze.

Castle said Cheika spoke to her that same day and she supported the team's decision to stand the pair down. The Wallabies' website believed the women were Ashley-Cooper's sister-in-law and friends.

Following the court case, local news outlet the Arizona Daily Star submitted a Freedom of Information request to find out the gender of the baby, which, until now, hadn't been revealed to the public. The Associated Press received the video from the Forest Service on Tuesday.

Dickey told authorities he constructed the target with an explosive substance known as Tannerite.

Seconds later we hear a gunshot, and the target explodes, revealing a blue cloud and immediately igniting the surrounding brush. I feel absolutely awful about it.

The fire spread to the nearby Coronado National Forest, and burned 46,991 acres owned by the state of Arizona. "It was probably one of the worst days of my life.", Dickey said.

He pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor violation in September and was sentenced to five years of probation in addition to paying $220,000 in restitution.
