Gender Reveal Goes Wrong When Explosives Cause Arizona Forest Fire Boy or girl? Either way, an Arizona couple sure wasn’t expecting a fire. Newly released video from the U.S. Forest Service shows the moment a gender reveal party went horribly wrong. Border Patrol Agent Dennis Dickey and his wife, Rita, gathered friends and family in April 2017 to find out if they were having a boy or a girl. But when they fired a rifle at explosive powder in a target, it ended in a fire that burned nearly 47,000 acres.
