Abstract: A fire ignited at an electric utility plant. The fire was apparently caused by sparks produced during a malfunction of the electro-dynamic brake on an Enertech windmill. Two employees fought the ensuing conflagration. One employee was overrun by the flame front, and his clothing ignited. He was hospitalized with second- and third-degree burns over 60 to 75 percent of his body. The other employee sustained second-degree burns over 15 percent of his body (on his arm, abdomen, and lower back) while rescuing his coworker. He was also hospitalized.
