A portion of the roof at an Electrolux plant in Orange, New South Wales, Australia, collapsed on February 4, which forced a halt to production.
Media outlets reported that power was cut when the roof fell in over the plant's electric sub-station. This raised fears of asbestos exposure; the facility dates to the 1940s. Australia's ABC News reported that, as of February 5, the plant remained closed while safety experts were on-site to evaluate the danger from asbestos.
