Wind turbine catches fire near Rep. Susan King’s home

A fire started near the weekend home of Texas Representative Susan King. Representative King called authorities just after 10 p.m. on Sunday after she spotted a wind turbine on fire.

The Buffalo Gap, View and Ecca Volunteer Fire Departments responded with eight engines and dozens of firefighters. The fire spread to surrounding grass and burned around two acres before crews were able to put it out.

It is unclear what caused the wind turbine to catch fire, but this is the second time a wind turbine has caught on fire in the same area in the last five weeks.
