Five fire engines are battling a blaze in a storage area of a Rotorua factory.

Firefighters were sent to a factory in Oasis Place, Ngapuna about 5pm, fire northern communications shift manager Scott Osmond said.

The fire - in an 8m by 15m storage area - was well under way when the first crews arrived and a call was put out for backup.

"We're just cutting it [the fire] off from reaching the main factory, which it looks as though we will do succesfully," Osmond said.

Yes, it will be a great attraction

Maybe, if it is executed correctly

No, it won't

It is just another pipe dream
