Flames engulfed a £1 million wind turbine in the Cambridgeshire Fens this morning, causing plumes of thick black smoke that could be seen for miles around.

Fire crews were called to the blaze at the wind farm on Benwick Road, Doddington, at 7.50am on Wednesday May 30.

One crew from Chatteris and one crew and a multi-star, equipped with a 31m ladder, from Stanground arrived to find an 89m wind turbine well alight, with debris falling to the ground.

The crews remained on standby while the fire was left to burn out. No firefighting action was required.

All crews returned to their stations by 10.45am.

The cause of the fire is unknown at this time despite local speculation of a lightning strike.
