Asbestos haults work at new natural gas power plant

Asbestos has stopped construction of Progress Energy's new Sutton Natural Gas Plant on Highway 421 near Wilmington. Crews are investigating to make sure all traces are removed. About half a pound of the hazardous substance was found in what's believed to be old buried construction dating back more than 50 years.
