El Dorado Ranch Fire

Denien Morris captured this shot from the Oak Glen Retreat on Saturday. 

After an investigation, CAL FIRE law enforcement determined the cause of the  7,500- acre El Dorado Fire to be the result of a smoke-generating pyrotechnic device, used during a gender reveal party. More details to come, as the investigation continues. 

Hundreds of local residents remain evacuated from their homes in the rapidly-growing fire. As of 8:20 p.m., the fire is at 5% containment. 

There are at least two structures that have burned in the fire.

Nobody gives a rat's arse what sort of genitals your spawn might have. Get over yourselves and your "gender reveal" party. Shouldn't be having group gathering during the pandemic anyway. I really hope these idiots have to pay restitution and that they are forever haunted by the ghosts of all the dead wildlife caused by their negligence.
