Wildfire Erupts During Fireworks Display at Arizona Resort


In a riveting turn of events over the weekend, a wildfire sprang up amidst the mesmerizing magic of fireworks at Arizona’s BlueWater Resort and Casino. Still under investigation, this fiery monstrosity illuminated the Saturday night sky much more than the planned pyrotechnic spectacle.

The wildfire made its initial appearance shortly after the fireworks impressive show, seemingly piqued by wayward sparks. These sparks crafted three small fires at approximately 9:18 p.m., precursors to an ensuing wildfire of a far greater magnitude. Much like an uncontrolled symphony, gusts of wind blew steadily, causing the fires to dance unfettered through 150 acres of land, which lay on the California side of the Colorado River in San Bernardino County.

A hushed stillness fell over the Bermuda Palms neighborhood in California as the wildfire drew too close for comfort. Nevertheless, the blaze was held at bay before it could inflict any damage on the buildings. A dance of determination unfurled as firefighting units persisted in their relentless struggle against this natural beast. By Sunday night’s shroud, the wildfire was 20% tamed, a significant victory nonetheless.

An assembly of crews from various fire departments embraced this battle, including the Bureau of Indian Affairs, Bureau of Land Management, San Bernardino, Buckskin, and Colorado River Indian Tribes (CRIT), among others. The much-loved BlueWater Resort and Casino, the cradle of the chaos, is owned and operated by the Colorado River Indian Tribes (CRIT).

The investigation continues as police search for the suspect; a lone man in a white car.
