Credit:  Publié le 09/01/2014 Par L'union-L'Ardennais | lunion.presse.fr ~~

Depuis environ 19 heures ce soir, une éolienne est en feu près d’Antheny, entre Auvillers-les-Forges et Rumigny. Pour l’instant, les pompiers ne peuvent pas intervenir, était donné que le feu a pris au sommet de la structure, à plusieurs dizaines de mètres du sol. En attendant l’arrivée d’un responsable du parc éolien, ils mettent en place un périmètre de sécurité. Prudence si vous circulez dans le secteur, il est formellement recommandé de s’éloigner du sinistre. Le plus grand risque serait qu’une pale soit projetée alentour.

[Since about 7:00 p.m., a wind turbine is on fire near Antheny, between Auvillers-les-Forges and Rumigny. For now, firefighters can not intervene, because the fire started at the top of the structure, several tens of meters above the ground. While waiting for the arrival of someone responsible for the wind facility, they set up a safety perimeter. Caution if traveling through the area: it is strictly recommended to keep away from the disaster. The biggest risk is that a blade might be thrown off.]
