There will be one less wind turbine in Ontario.

An overnight fire has destroyed the top portion of a wind turbine at the Kingsbridge Wind Farm near Goderich.

The fire began around 2 a.m.

The wind farm operators aren’t certain what started the fire, but neighbours speculated it was a mechanical or electrical problem because the blaze started where all the gears and electronics are located.

Although the fire did not burn the turbine to the ground, it’s expected the turbine will have to be torn down for safety reasons.

Scott Miller will have more on the CTV News at 6.
