Windmill fire on the Langenhard

LAHR Germany -  Early Friday morning at 2.30 am police reported a turbine fire on the Langenhard near Lahr. At the same time, the Integrated Control Center Ortenau received the message that a wind turbine was burning on the Langenhard. The fire had already been seen on the way to the equipment house of the Seelbach Fire Department, said Operations Manager Bernd Wagner. This was his second wind turbine fire. The first was in 2013 - also on the Langenhard. Efforts to extinguish the fire remain highly dangerous because of the height of the turbine and the falling debris. Therefore, the fire department has cordoned off a radius of 500 meters, according to Wagner. A police helicopter was also requested to take survey photos and look for possible forest fires. The fire is over but the work is still ongoing. The fire department is preparing for a long operation.
