A Malfunctioning, Flaming Wind Turbine Is Actually Quite Beautiful

It’s unfortunate when a wind turbine, which can cost hundreds of thousands of dollars to build and install, malfunctions and breaks down. But sometimes the results can be quite beautiful, particularly when there’s fire involved and those massive blades keep spinning.

It’s doubtful the owner of this wind turbine in Coimbatore, India, sees the smoke vortex trailing off their investment as a beautiful silver lining. But the rest of us can sit back, enjoy the spectacle, and hope they take their time extinguishing the blaze.

Any idea why two of the turbines are on fire in the first place? The one at the back looks like it burned out already.
