CAL Fire San Bernardino Unit wrote on Twitter Instagram “CAL FIRE Law Enforcement has determined the El Dorado Fire, burning near Oak Glen in San Bernardino County, was caused by a smoke generating pyrotechnic device, used during a gender reveal party. The fire began at 10:23 am on September 5, 2020, in the El Dorado Ranch Park in Yucaipa. The fire spread from the park to the north onto Yucaipa Ridge that separates Mountain Home Village and Forest Falls from the City of Yucaipa.”
After seeing the post from CAL Fire San Bernardino Unit’s tweet regarding the starting of the fire, many wrote on Twitter showing their anger.
Some of the interesting comments are as follows:
“What happened to million other ways of revealing the gender of your child without causing huge fires & forcing your neighbors to evacuate. I hope heavy fines are imposed on these douches.”
“how stupid do you have to be to use a pyrotechnic in a grassy area on a triple digit day during the height of fire season and not even pack an extinguisher”
“Humans are really at their peak right now. Imagine burning down 7000 acres of land for a gender reveal party. Excited for our species to keep the rampage going.”
“These people doing the over the top gender reveal parties, are not doing it to actually know the gender perse… it seems, but rather trying to outdo others & be able to post on social media how “creative,” they are.“
