A windmill in Bear Creek is currently on fire. Flames from the center of the windmill are visible and heavy black smoke is billowing and can be seen from as far away as the North Cross Valley Expressway. Chunks of the windmill have fallen to the ground. Crews from Bear Creek Twp. have been dispatched to battle the blaze.
