Fire crews are battling a blaze in Auckland's Onehunga for a second day.

While the fire is now contained, it's yet to be extinguished and FENZ says it could take a while.

It broke out at Green Gorilla waste management facility in Onehunga yesterday afternoon, forcing nearby businesses to evacuate, road closures and traffic delays.

The clouds of thick black smoke billowing is having lasting effects.
