Kern County firefighters received an early call for a wind generator fire which spread to the grass below it in the Oak Creek area off Tehachapi-Willow Springs Road on Saturday, June 25, and knocked it down quickly, according to KCFD Engineer Phil Neufeld.

The crews arrived before the fire could spread, Neufeld said, and firefighters held it two acres of dried grass.

Oak Creek resident Diana Palmer said firefighters were on the scene quickly and aggressively and stopped it before it could spread. KCFD used both a ground and air attack to snuff out the flames, she said.

Palmer shared photos of the burned turbine and the firefighting effort of KCFD.

There were no injuries.
