As part of their reveal celebrations, Dickey was to shoot at a target that was filled with powder, which would either burst and show blue (for a boy) or pink (for a girl) - sounds straightforward enough, doesn't it? The forest service investigated the fire, which authorities said caused more than $8 million in suppression costs and damages.

The Arizona Daily Star obtained the video from the U.S. Forest Service through a public-records request.

The fire burned 47,000 acres.

Dickey shot a rifle at the target, which contained the highly explosive substance Tannerite, thus sparking the fast-moving blaze. A man's voice yells, "start packing up! start packing up!"

Dickey reported the fire immediately and admitted igniting it, the US Forest Service said.

Speaking in court, he told the judge: "It was a complete accident".
