The couple who used a smoke bomb at a gender reveal ceremony and sparked Southern California’s El Dorado wildfire that killed a firefighter last year has been charged with involuntary manslaughter and 29 other crimes, authorities announced Tuesday.
The charges included one felony count of involuntary manslaughter, three felony counts of recklessly causing a fire with great bodily injury, four felony counts of recklessly causing a fire to inhabited structures and 22 misdemeanor counts of recklessly causing fire to property.
San Bernardino County District Attorney Jason Anderson said Tuesday that the couple could face sentences extending from the “lower teens to low twenties” of years if found guilty on all charges.
