A lightning strike sets fire to a wind turbine in Montaves (Soria)
Last Friday, as a result of the storm that hit the province of Soria, lightning struck a wind turbine, causing a huge fire.
The wind turbine, located in the wind farm on Mount Cayo and managed by Cetesa, began to burn and both the fire and the large curtain of smoke could be seen several kilometres away.
In order to prevent the flames from affecting the ground, firefighters and environmental personnel were called to the scene. Thanks to the rapid action and the rain that accompanied the squall, it was possible to prevent the flames from spreading into the forest, thus preventing a major catastrophe.
