A video shows a wind turbine with flames and smoke coming out of it.

It happened a little after 5 p.m. on County Road 3367 between Taft and Portland.

Local officials say that they have no choice but to let the fire burn itself out. They are currently trying to figure out who the wind turbine belongs to so they can contact them to turn off the electricity.

The area is being kept clear in case any debris falls off.

No reports of injuries or how the fire got started yet.
