The clip that was shot in Green Valley, Arizona, shows a makeshift target with the words "boy" and "girl" in an area of remote scrubland.

The U.S. Forest Service has released video showing an off-duty Border Patrol agent's gender-reveal party explosion that caused a massive wildfire a year ago in Arizona.

The target was part of Dickey's pre-planned celebration to announce the gender of the couple's child and the target contained blue powder for a boy.

"Start packing up! Start packing up!" a voice is heard saying in the video after the explosion.

"Start packing up!" a man yells off camera. Except added to the powder was a substance called Tannerite, which is legal, but as we can all now see, is also very explosive. He also will be sentenced to 5 years of probation and agreed to participate in a public service announcement with the U.S. Forest Service concerning the cause of the Sawmill fire.

The Sawmill fire burned through almost 47,000 acres and needed about 800 fire fighters to put it out.

Dickey, who is expected to keep his job as a Border Patrol agent, will borrow from his retirement fund to pay the restitution. The damage to state, federal and private land, and firefighting costs topped US$8 million (NZ$11 million).

Dickey, 37, immediately reported the fire and admitted to being responsible for it, according to a news release from the U.S. Attorney's Office, District of Arizona. He told a judge that it was a complete accident, calling it the worst day of his life.
