Fire destroys windmill turbine

BLUE KNOB – Fire destroyed a windmill turbine at the Allegheny Ridge Wind Farm on top of the mountain in Blair County between Blue Knob and Lilly on Monday morning.

Lilly fire Chief Robert Crum said it’s impossible to fight a fire at a turbine 250 feet above the ground, so firefighters from Blue Knob set up a perimeter for safety reasons and extinguished brush fires that started when hot embers fell to the ground.

The fire was reported around 7 a.m., he said.
