Dennis Dickey was having a gender reveal party for his wife.

In order to reveal whether their soon-to-be child would be a boy or girl, Dickey shot a high powered explosive at a target containing the explosive substance that would either be blue or pink.

The shot caused a massive wildfire that needed 800 firefighters, forced hundreds of people from their homes and lit 45,000 acres on fire and the entire fire cost 8 million dollars.

He is set to pay $220,000 in fines and sentenced to 5 years probation.
