    The El Dorado fire in Yucaipa has now burned 8,600 acres and is only 7% contained. It was started by a husband and wife who invited family members to a "gender reveal" at El Dorado Ranch Park, then set off two pyrotechnic devices which emitted colored smoke. We don't know if the smoke was blue or pink – but we do know the devices started the fire. Can you say "criminal charges"? I knew you could.
