Midnight warehouse fire in Auckland

6:38 am on 24 April 2015

Fifteen fire trucks have been battling a fire this morning at a large warehouse in south Auckland.

The Fire Service was called to Onehunga about 12.30am to a site where a compactor machine storing palm kernel oil had caught fire.

A fire spokesperson said although the fire was put out a couple of hours later, three fire trucks remain on standby.

No one was inside the building at the time.
