El Dorado Fire near Yucaipa sparked by pyrotechnic device at gender reveal party, officials say

YUCAIPA, Calif. (KABC) -- A smoke-generating pyrotechnic device used during a gender reveal party sparked the El Dorado Fire burning near Yucaipa, which has charred more than 8,000 acres, officials said.

According to the Cal Fire San Bernardino Unit, the El Dorado Fire was caused by "a smoke generating pyrotechnic device" used during the party in El Dorado Ranch Park. The fire spread from the park to Yucaipa Ridge, which separates Mountain Home Village and Forest Falls from Yucaipa.

"Cal Fire reminds the public that with the dry conditions and critical fire weather, it doesn't take much to start a wildfire", the agency said in a press release. "Those responsible for starting fires due to negligence or illegal activity can be held financially and criminally responsible."

Some residents of the nearby community of Oak Glen, like Patrick Patterson, were upset to learn about the blaze's cause. His home has been surrounded by smoke since it ignited and says the flames got close overnight.

"That place, there's nothing green out there. It's a meadow of dry, brown, dead grass. Why would you go out there and think that you can light off any kind of firework? Smoke or otherwise. It all has fire," Patterson said.

10. Yes, the people involved are stupid,

Not the state. This behavior is obscenely selfish and criminally liable considering all the life threatening fires happening, and current red flag conditions.

"I am upset that people are stupid," said Forest Falls resident Linda Corcoran, who had to evacuate her home with her husband. "People don't posses common sense and so yes, I am angry, but not surprised."

There is zero excuse for what this family did, and I hope they have everything legally possible thrown at them. It's beyond stupidity, even moronic.
