Gender reveal parties have become a hot-button issue in recent years. Many people feel that such a big fuss shouldn’t be made over a baby’s gender, which doesn’t have to do with anatomy but rather, a child’s own identity. But we’ve also heard about tragic events coming out of extravagant “reveal” parties, too. This wildfire being the latest.
The El Dorado fire is massive and the fact that is started from a gender reveal party is almost hard to belief. It began on Saturday morning and has been out of control since. Officials say 527 people from 10 fire crews are currently battling the flames.
