Review of warehouse fire finds asbestos floated away

From Morning Report, 7:52 am on 25 November 2021

A review of firefighting at a big south Auckland warehouse blaze says asbestos floated up to 1km away.

It also shows 22 fire trucks were not decontaminated and may have carried hazardous asbestos back to their fire stations.

Fire and Emergency is defending itself against union claims it has poor asbestos handling that exposes staff to risk.

Reporter Phil Pennington has the details.
