El Dorado Fire (2020)
This fire burned more than 22,000 acres in California, destroyed 10 buildings and damaged 6 more and took the life of a fireman.
This tragic event started because of a gender reveal party. Yes, you read that correctly.
In case you are unfamiliar with the term, a gender reveal party is a party through which friends and relatives of a couple who’s expecting find out the gender of the baby.
These parties started to be more and more extravagant to the point where it started a tragedy. A pyrotechnic device was at fault for the flames that followed.
