Dozens of firefighters have been battling a blaze at a South Auckland factory this morning.

A fire service spokesman said the blaze was reported about 3.15am at Huhtamaki New Zealand - a packing and manufacturing company - on Bairds Rd, Otara.  

The fire had not damaged the structure of the building and firefighters were continuing to "turn over product to try and get to the seat of the fire", he said.

Ten fire trucks were still at the scene around 8am and were expected to remain there for a few hours.

No-one had been injured.
