Still no explanation as to what sparked a fire at the Kent Hills wind farm back in August. One of the over 30 turbines was heavily damaged when flames raced through the engine. Energy Minister Jack Keir tells CHSJ News, he isn't sure if a source of the fire will ever be found:

Keir adds they have concluded it wasn't a lightning strike that sparked the fire and they continue to have talks with the manufacturer of the turbine.
