Apparently he loaded the gender-revealing target with too much of the substance, however, as it exploded and spewed fire on the dried-out grasslands below, to the horror of onlookers. It took nearly 800 firefighters at a cost of $8.2 million to extinguish.

The footage, obtained by the Arizona Daily Star and other media outlets, shows the massive Sawmill Fire starting in the Santa Rita Mountain foothills on April 23, 2017. Blue smoke can briefly be seen billowing up before flames spread onto the surrounding shrubby grass.

The fire burned 47,000 acres. According to the Daily Star, Dickey agreed to pay $100,000 when he was sentenced in October and another $120,000 in monthly payments of $500 over 20 years. A man's voice yells, "start packing up! start packing up!" Dickey shot a target packed with the explosive Tannerite and a blue powder.

An off-duty Border Patrol agent, Dennis Dickey, filled a target with a colored powder, to reveal the gender of his unborn baby.

But social media has savaged one element in particular - the dozens of blood-red Christmas trees which line a White House hallway. In the East Room are four 14-foot trees displaying 72 handmade paper ornaments representing the six different regions of America.

A news release from the US attorney's office said Agent Dickey will make an initial payment of $100,000, then make monthly payments after that.

As part of a plea agreement, Dickey agreed to five years of probation and to make a public service announcement about the cause of the Sawmill Fire with the Forest Service.

One such gender reveal has however been discovered as the source of a 2017 wildfire in Arizona.
