irn crow refractory

Auckland firefighters are at the scene of a factory blaze in Papatoetoe that broke out at around 4am.

It's at the Crow Refractory - a company that makes boiler liners, and was the scene of a much larger blaze late last year.

The fire is just about out - it's been confined to an area in the middle of the factory.

An extremely long ladder is being used to get over the seat of the fire.

Investigators are attending.
