(Mesothelioma Cancer News) – A recent factory fire has sparked concerns over asbestos contamination. As reported by ONE News/ NZPA, the factory fire in Auckland at the Miller Moyes Seacraft building Tuesday, which was eventually contained by over 60 firefighters, led to the temporary closing of certain areas so that emergency workers could provide services more quickly.
As noted in the report, the building in which the fire occurred had been used to manufacture boats. The fire, which was reportedly spotted sometime before 6:30 p.m., potentially burned asbestos and fiberglass in the building, which could be dangerous for workers and others in the area.
As further noted in the report, one firefighter had to receive medical treatment due to heat exhaustion. An investigation continues into the circumstances of the fire and asbestos concerns.
