An initial investigation by NSW Fire Service and Police into a fire that occurred in a lunch room at Taronga Zoo this week assessed that the cause could have been a toaster plugged into a possibly faulty circuit. Initial concerns that there may have been asbestos contained in the roof of the structure were unfounded, as subsequent testing by independent specialists found no asbestos in various samples from the building.
