ASOS presses pause after fire

Global online fashion retail giant ASOS has been forced to take a bold move and press pause on their online store after a fire ripped through their only warehouse. The fire in the ASOS warehouse in Barnsley, West Yorkshire (UK) spread over four floors and more than 500 staff were evacuated. Thankfully no-one was hurt during the blaze that is currently being reported as a malicious arson attack.

Customers shopping on the ASOS website were suddenly re-directed to a holding page with a message to all customers from the ASOS customer care team informing them that the website had been paused.
