Canadian gender reveal party sparks wildfire, couple fined $ 500


One such reveal party in Canada traveled south after an explosive device ignited a small forest fire, authorities said.

The incident happened on May 31 in northern Alberta. A device, which was supposed to release blue or pink powder, indicating the baby’s gender, inadvertently started hell, Global News reported.

The flames reached about an acre, or about three-quarters of a football field, before firefighters were able to extinguish the flames.

Travis Fairweather, a wildfire information officer at Alberta Wildfire, said the couple responsible were fined the equivalent of $ 500.

“While fireworks and explosive targets can be fun, they can also get expensive if you inadvertently start a wildfire,” Fairweather said.

Alberta Wildfire issued a statement saying that the use of explosive targets in protected forest areas is prohibited “without the written permission of a forest officer.”

Lately, sloppy evenings revealing the genre have increased.

In April, a New Hampshire man was accused of an explosion at a gender reveal party that was felt as far away as Massachusetts – and raised fears of a possible earthquake.
