The weather in the state of Florida is currently far too dry, so the authorities have put a temporary ban on any outdoor activities that might involve fire. However, as Brevard County Fire Rescue revealed on April 4th, a Brevard County family ignored the restrictions last weekend, and it resulted in tragedy.

According to WESH, the unnamed household decided to hold a gender reveal party and spice it up with shooting at some Tannerite explosives from a weapon. The epicenter of explosion results in a massive fire that began to mercilessly consume the surrounding area.

The flames were spreading so fast that the first responders had to spend several hours to finally put them out. The fire burned 10 acres of land.

There were no human casualties and no buildings caught fire.

Matthew is our Founding Father who updates you on everything that is crucial for the U.S. When little Matthew used to be asked who he wanted to be when he grew up, the answer was "Elvis". That was a long-lasting effect that the 3-year-old Matthew got from watching an Elvis impersonator contest on TV. His parents spent the next decade quietly dreading that he would run away to Hollywood one day. Instead Matthew won a scholarship in Barcelona, graduated in Business Administration and spent four years building a career in HR. Journalism was a happy accident that Matthew got into thanks to a girlfriend; she was an intern at The Denver Post. Starting with copywriting gigs, he quickly moved to the more serious stuff for The Working In, FigureIT, and The County Watch. Matthew currently resides in good old Denver, keeping a watchful eye on everything that makes America tick. And yes, he still loves Elvis.
