McBain wind turbine catches fire

Construction crews will have to assess the damage to a wind turbine that caught fire in Missaukee County.

Crews cut the power to the turbine near McBain Tuesday, which seemed to put out the flames before firefighters arrived.

This was the first fire emergency with those turbines and the fire chief says if the fire was serious there is really little they can do to fight it and save the turbine.

Crews still aren’t sure what caused the fire.
