Fourteen fire engines fought to control a blaze in a factory in south Auckland this morning.

Fire and Emergency says it received multiple calls alterting it to the blaze.

The fire in the building on Great South Rd, Takanini, was well alight when crews arrived shortly after 3am.

There were no reports of injuries but a number of cars outside the building also caught fire.

The service said crews were now dampening down hotspots and some were being stood down.
