Typhoon sets Japanese floating solar farm on fire


A powerful typhoon struck eastern Japan and set a solar power plant on fire earlier this week.

According to UNTV, the video shows smoke rising from a floating solar panel after Typhoon Faxai passed over the area.

The power plant is to the south of Tokyo.

Firefighters say the typhoon blew the solar panels on top of each other, and they gathered enough heat to then catch on fire.

In all about 50 panels were damaged by the fire.

The typhoon is responsible for killing one woman and creating millions of dollars worth of damage.
