TITUSVILLE, Fla. (WESH/AP) — A gender reveal party mixed with explosives has sparked a 10-acre fire in Florida.

WESH-TV reports it happened Saturday in Brevard County.

The county has been prohibiting open burning because of an increase in fires.

Officials say to follow the rules in order to avoid straining medical resources during the coronavirus pandemic.
