British online fashion retailer ASOS said on Saturday it had been forced to suspend orders and take down its website following a fire at its main warehouse which police believe was started deliberately.
About 500 workers were forced to evacuate the warehouse in Barnsley in northern England after the blaze broke out late on Friday. The fire comes just two weeks after ASOS warned that its full-year profits would miss forecasts by 30 percent.
Ten fire engines with more than 60 firefighters dealt with the fire which involved four floors of the 60,000 square metre warehouse, South Yorkshire Fire Service said.
"South Yorkshire Police are now treating the incident as deliberate, after initial investigations were carried out this morning with South Yorkshire Fire and Rescue," the police forces said in a statement.

ASOS said orders would be suspended while it assessed damage.
