TUCSON, Arizona (KXAN) — The U.S. Forest Service says that a massive 2017 wildfire in Arizona was caused by a gender reveal gone wrong.
In some newly-released video, an explosion can be seen starting the Sawmill Fire near Tucson.
That fire burned nearly 47,000 acres of land in a little more than a week.
According to officials, no injuries were reported in the fire.
Border patrol agent Dennis Dickey has been charged with causing a fire without a permit. He appeared in federal court last month where he was sentenced to pay $100,000 up front, and $500 every month for the next 20 years.
He also agreed to conduct a public service announcement with the U.S. Forest Service about the cause of the fire.
