Video captures English wind turbine catching fire, melting to pieces

Another wind turbine caught fire this summer, but this time it happened across the pond.

Video shows the wind turbine on fire while a large plume of black smoke fills the sky in Hull, England.

Residents watched as parts of the wind turbine melted, and pieces fell from the massive structure. 

Firefighters were soon able to extinguish the fire, and crews say they received nearly 200 calls about the turbine fire.

It is unknown at this time what caused the fire.

Just two weeks ago, lightning struck a wind turbine in North Texas, setting it ablaze. 

Videos from witnesses and firefighters showed the wind turbine generator ablaze and disintegrated in the sky over Crowell, Texas.
