A Gender Reveal Photo Caused The Current Fires Blazing In California


It has been confirmed that a pyrotechnic device caused some of the current California wildfires. A family was using the device to show colored smoke for a gender reveal photo. These types of photos are very popular for sharing the gender of a baby with family and friends. The El Dorado Fire is located about 72 miles east of Los Angeles. This fire started on Saturday at the El Dorado Ranch Park.

Reportedly, the family stayed and cooperated with the fire department and law enforcement. Unfortunately, this is just one of 23 major wildfires in California right now. For instance, this particular fire is less than 10 percent contained at the time of posting.
