Forest Service has released video showing a border patrol agent's gender-reveal stunt that triggered a devastating wildfire in Arizona a year ago.

A gender reveal in Arizona has caused a massive forest fire.

A male voice in a panicked voice twice shouts "Start packing up!"

Moments after the target exploded in a magnificent blue cloud - revealing Rita was pregnant with a boy - the blaze spread, eventually reaching the Coronado National Forest and destroying over 45,000 acres of land, racking up more than $8 million in damages.

Dickey was charged with starting the fire on September 27, the Star reported.

It’s official: Amazon names NYC, Northern Virginia as two sites for HQ2
Executives traveled across the United States - and to one Canadian city - to tour sites to find the company's next home. Luckily, Amazon included a handy map to explain where this so-called National Landing office will, well, land.

The video was first obtained by the Daily Star after filing a Freedom of Information Request with the US Forest Service.

But for more than a year, the U.S. Forest Service refused to release the video of the genesis of a fire the size of American Samoa.

In the video, blue smoke - presumably indicating that the baby was a boy - can be seen briefly as the sparks ignite the dry grass all around the target.

One of the commenters where the video is posted on YouTube, wrote, "I feel bad for the poor baby boy who's inheriting those genes".

According to court documents, Dickey "immediately reported the fire to law enforcement, cooperated and admitted that he started the fire". He'll also pay monthly $US500 ($A690) instalments for the next two decades and be sentenced to five years of probation. Coronado National Forest spokeswoman Heidi Schewel said she wasn't sure on Tuesday whether that's now in the works. He also repeatedly told the judge that the fire was "a complete accident".
