A fire at a wind turbine had crews shutting down roads in Missaukee County due to a fire at a wind turbine on Tuesday.

It happened at a turbine near Lachance Roads and Lucas Road.

Details are limited at this time, but crews on scene told MI News 26 that they don’t have equipment to handle a fire this high in the air and are letting it burn. They say they’re waiting for more information from the company that owns the turbine, Heritage Sustainable Energy in Traverse City.

Due to the fire each of the blades eventually fell off and continued to smoke on the ground.
