Asbestos Found in TN Federal Building

By news admin

A federal building in Oak Ridge has been shut down indefinitely after an inspection found asbestos inside.
The building houses about three-hundred fifty Department of Energy workers and contractors along with staff members of U.S. Rep. Chuck Fleischmann's office.
A meeting is set for Monday to determine where the employees will work while the building is closed.
The temporary shut-down is a precaution after insulation with asbestos in it was found undone in the building's heating and cooling system, but preliminary tests show the building is clean.
