"Jared Schuette owns the property where the wind turbine is located, he said that this is quite an ordeal because this has never happened before."
Sorry to burst your bubble Mr. Schuette, but as the turbines age and more nacelles go up in smoke, your ordeal will get progressively larger.
The fire was reported around 5:30 p.m. on Elkton Road near Berne Road in Oliver Township. The wind turbine involved is located about a half mile off the road, so a witness said fire crews are having trouble accessing it.
And if you think it's hard for fire crews to reach a wind turbine fire in Huron County, how about when a fire breaks out on a remote Maine summit in the heavily forested Maine woods on a windy day when the woods are dry?
