Firefighters are still at the scene of a blaze at a paper recycling plant in Christchurch.

The fire at the Sockburn plant broke out on Wednesday in a pile of paper stacks 50 metres wide x 50 metres long, and five metres high.

The Fire Service says two trucks are standing by while bulldozers knock down the smouldering pile.
