October 17, 2012: Mercury News – “Central Nebraska wind farm to fire up soon“
October 25, 2012: Yankton Press and Dakotan – “Wind Tower Fire Reported Near Crofton“
And why does this matter to the folks on the Allegheny Front? – “The fire was located at the top of the wind tower, which is part of the newer section of towers in the area. High winds at the time sent some sparks flying, which briefly ignited some small grass fires.”
Unlike Nebraska, we don’t typically have “grass fires” in the mountain forests.
