It's a sad week for those who love (Dutch) windmills, which includes me.
Youths in Burum (Friesland, a northern province of the Netherlands) decided to burn a stack of Bibles (which is a deed which should raise concern anyway, but it gets worse...), and sparks from the fire set the nearby 200 year old windmill alight.
If you don't mind listening to the Dutch commentary, here's the news video, in which you can see the windmill burn and eventually collapse: video .
And here's the windmill in better days: Dutch windmill database .
One less wonderful windmill for me and others to photograph!
