Wind Turbine Catches Fire, Makes Beautiful Smoke Spiral

One shouldn’t be pleased to see any large structures lit up in flames, but it’s hard not to be mesmerized by this malfunctioning wind turbine on fire.

The video, captures a broken windmill on fire in Tamil Nadu, India. According to the short video description, high voltage caused it to catch fire, and a technical glitch made the turbine run on high speed. The result is this oddly beautiful smoke helix continuously being spun for a solid minute or two.
