Bad day for wind turbines

NOT my photos (except for the bewildered Meerkat). Apparently from various sources. Original accompanying text suggested lubrication failures but eg photo 6 suggests lightning was the cause. German text translation says:

"A wind turbine on fire on Wednesday (09/06/2004) in the municipality Tüttendorf (Kreis Rendsburg-Eckernförde). The two-megawatt plant is likely to get strong thunderstorms by lightning on fire. The gondola in 64 Metz height burns out completely. The damage amounts to around two million euros. Photo: Wulf Pfeiffer dpa / LNO"
