Video of Border Patrol agent's gender-reveal explosion that sparked wildfire released

A screenshot from the video below showing the exploding target that started what became the 46,000-acre Sawmill fire

The video shows an explosive-laden package standing in a dry, grassy field, with the words "boy" and "girl" painted on it. The forest service investigated the fire, which authorities said caused more than $8 million in suppression costs and damages.

The incident happened back in Arizona in April 2017, but now thanks to a Freedom of Information Act request from the Arizona Daily Star the video has been made public. Blue smoke can briefly be seen billowing up before flames spread onto the surrounding shrubby grass. The wildfire was sparked when the Border Patrol agent shot at an explosive target.

The incident, which happened in April 2017, resulted in 800 firefighters being called as the fire burned for nearly two weeks.

At the end of the video, a man can be heard yelling twice for people to, "Start packing up".

The then-off duty Border Patrol agent reported the fire immediately and admitted to being the cause of ignition.
