Couple Faces Manslaughter Charges for Allegedly Igniting Fire
A smoke bomb used at the couple's gender reveal party sparked the El Dorado Fire that caused the death of one firefighter.
What started as a couple’s celebration to reveal their baby’s gender spiraled into a months-long wildfire that burned over 22,000 acres and caused the death of one firefighter fighting the blaze, according to California authorities, who recently charged Refugio Manuel Jimenez Jr. and Angela Renee Jimenez with involuntary manslaughter.
San Bernardino County District Attorney Jason Anderson said in a press release that on September 5, 2020, the Jimenezes used a smoke bomb to reveal the gender of their pregnancy at the El Dorado Park in Yucaipa, Calif, which sparked a brush fire that became known as the El Dorado Fire.
