A Firefighter Has Died Battling the Wildfire Sparked by a Gender-Reveal Stunt

A firefighter has tragically died while battling a wildfire in Los Angeles caused by a gender reveal party.

This is a devastating loss…

And to make things even worse, an over the top gender reveal party caused even more destruction when a pyrotechnic device set on fire.

This is utterly heartbreaking.

And there is absolutely no stopping them from spreading their path of destruction.

So they’re very common in places such as Australia, Africa, South-East Asia, South America… and even here in the United States.

The majority can come from absolutely nowhere and their destruction can be terrifying.

Igniting in December of 2019 and finally burning out in March of this year, Australia faced one of their most deadly summers in decades.

Thirty-four people in total lost their lives and more than 2,700 homes were completely destroyed by the flames.

It has been estimated that approximately 8,000 koala bears perished in the bushfires alongside thousands of other animals and birds.

And even though they’re now healing thanks to the help of volunteers all around the world, the 2020 bushfires are something the country will never get over.

We are now suffering here in the United States.

And it’s showing little sign of slowing down.

And the worst-yet has to be the El Dorado blaze.

And has since prompted the evacuation of more than three-thousand residents.

As of last month, the fire remained at 5 percent containment amid extreme weather conditions, in which temperatures soared to a record 121 degrees.

And it is one of twenty-two major fires burning in the state.

Including in San Bernardino County due to the El Dorado blaze.

Officials say the devastating blaze was started by a smoke-generating pyrotechnic device.

In a press release, the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection announced the fire started just after 10:20 am in the El Dorado Ranch Park in Yucaipa. “CAL Fire reminds the public that with the dry conditions and critical fire weather, it doesn’t take much to start a wildfire,” the news release said.

“Those responsible for starting fires due to negligence or illegal activity can be held financially and criminally responsible.”

For the sake of a lavish and over the top gender reveal party. Am I the only one losing my faith in humanity right now?

“We know how it started because they were still there,” Bennet Milloy said. “That, and the fact that there were surveillance cameras in the park.”

The criminal charges could fall under “a variety of charges,” he said – which would be more severe if homes were destroyed. The family could also be hit with violations of public resources codes and even arson, under California’s penal code section 452. As per the Daily Mail, Arson convictions can result in a sentence of up to 9 years.

Justice will never be served as a firefighter who has been tackling the blaze has reportedly lost his life.

US Forest Service officials said the death occurred in the San Bernardino National Forest, where firefighters have been trying to extinguish the El Dorado fire. The cause and circumstances of his death are currently being investigated.

“Our deepest sympathies are with the family, friends, and fellow firefighters during this time,” Forest Service spokesperson Zach Behrens said in a news release.
