ASOS has stopped taking orders due to a massive warehouse fire the size of six football fields. The plus size fashion retailer shut down their website on Saturday morning and made customers aware through an official statement via Twitter:
ASOS Warehouse Fire
We’ve had a fire in our warehouse & fortunately nobody’s hurt. There’s some damage so we can’t take any orders right now. Sincere apologies

The fire was at the main warehouse in Barnsley, South Yorkshire where more than sixty firefighters and ten fire trucks were on site fighting the blaze that ripped through the five-storey building on Friday night.

ASOS has been around since 2000 and is one of the UK’s largest online fashion retailers that ships to 109 countries so if you can’t get on their website or your order is delayed then this is probably the reason.
