Fire and Emergency said they were alerted to the blaze at Global Metal Solutions on Hunua Road in Papakura at 11.45am.

They said seven appliances attended the scene after a two-storey car crushing machine caught fire.

It is the second blaze there in a matter of months - in January, a huge fire broke-out at the business, which shut nearby roads and forced local residents to stay indoors.
