Lightning strikes Elkhorn Ridge wind turbine

Lightning struck a turbine at the Elkhorn Ridge wind farm near Bloomfield Sunday afternoon.

There were no injuries, but a turbine blade was damaged, said Susan Olavarria, a spokeswoman for Edison Mission Energy, in an e-mail. The turbine was off-line for repairs.

The Bloomfield Fire Department responded to the emergency call, but the small fire burned itself out.

In late 2008, an explosion and fire in a turbine injured three workers during construction of the Elkhorn Ridge wind farm in northeast Nebraska.
