The wooden hoarding around the crane was on fire, not the actual crane. Looked like they were using the crane when I was out walking today at lunch, so any damage was likely just superficial.
Thanks for clarifying. That picture shows the crane base is blackened by the fire, difficult to see the source. I too was curious what would burn like that on a (presumably) all metal base. Maybe something flammable spilled on it, but the hoarding below is a much more reasonable explanation.It’s not at the base of the crane. That pic just shows the very top of the fire. It was much larger down lower from the crane base.
