Back in 2020, California was under assault by multiple huge fires, of which the freak dry lightning storm did the most damage. Another caught the public’s eye, and that was a very devastating fire, El Dorado. It was sparked by none other than a firework (smoke bomb) at a gender reveal party.
I’m sorry, but no surprise whatsoever warrants illegal and stupid usage of fireworks in a state ravaged by drought. The charge on the couple is involuntary manslaughter.
