WAUKEE — First responders in Waukee were dispatched over the weekend to a gender reveal explosion in rural Dallas County.
The Waukee fire and police departments were dispatched Sunday around 5:30 p.m. to an explosion in the 32000 block of Ute Avenue.
Upon arrival, personnel spoke to the owners of the property and confirmed that there was an explosion as a result of a gender reveal announcement, according to the Waukee Fire Department.
A commercially available gender reveal kit was found to be the cause of the explosion.
There were no injuries or damage on the property.
The fire department says there “was a yet unsubstantiated claim of broken windows in a neighboring home as a result of the explosion.”
A gender reveal announcement in Knoxville ended with a death on Saturday after a family “inadvertently” built a pipe bomb.
