Video shows gender-reveal mishap that led to 47K-acre wildfire

Video captures dramatic moment that caused Sawmill Fire

On Monday, the U.S. Forest Service released a video of the moment where it all went wrong, after the Arizona Daily Star filed a request for the footage under the Freedom of Information Act.

The video, shot in April, shows the explosion that started the sawmill fire near Tucson, Arizona.

It begins as off-duty Border Patrol Agent Dennis Dickey shoots an explosive target to reveal the gender of the baby he and his wife were expecting.

Agent Dickey said he attempted to put out the fire but when that failed, he reported it.

"I feel absolutely frightful about it". He told a judge that it was a complete accident, calling it the worst day of his life.

As part of his plea agreement Dickey will make a public service announcement with the Forest Service about the cause of the wildfire.

It was later discovered that the shooting target contained Tannerite, a legal brand of highly explosive substance that erupts when shot by a high-velocity bullet.

Fire officials said gusty winds and the broken topography helped push the growth of the blaze. Coronado National Forest spokeswoman Heidi Schewel said she wasn't sure on Tuesday whether that's now in the works.

Dickey was sentenced to 5 years probation, and ordered to pay more than 8 million dollars in restitution - $100,000 of which he paid immediately, with the rest to be paid in $500 monthly installments. "It's true. When you see that video, you see how quickly the grasses catch on fire and how quickly it moves".
