Last September, disaster struck at a California gender-reveal party and now Refugio Manuel Jimenez Jr. and Angela Renee Jimenez are paying the price.
In the Los Angeles suburb of Yucaipa, the couple set off a smoke bomb to announce the gender of their baby. According to them., "the bomb ignited dry grass, which the couple attempted to extinguish using bottled water.
But the powerful winds and plentiful dry grass of California fire season were stronger, and the fire went on to burn for months, as the state endured its worst fire season on record." It began on September 5, 2020, and wasn't put out until November 16.
