A gender-reveal party in Canada went south after an explosive device set off a small wildfire, authorities said.
The incident happened on May 31 in northern Alberta. A device, which was supposed to release either blue or pink powder, indicating the baby’s sex, inadvertently set off an inferno, Global News reported.
A forest fire in Alberta, Canada.
The flames grew to about one acre, or roughly three-fourths of a football field, before firefighters were able to extinguish the flames.
Travis Fairweather, a wildfire information officer with Alberta Wildfire said the couple responsible was fined the equivalent of $500.

Alberta Wildfire issued a statement saying that the use of exploding targets within protected forest areas are prohibited “without the written permission from a Forest Officer.”
