Up to 50 firefighters have been battling an early morning fire in an industrial suburb in Auckland today.
Fire crews were called to a commercial building on Station Rd, in Penrose, just before 1.30am.
A spokesman said the two-storey building, used as a workshop and offices, was well-involved when firefighters arrived. The building is located next to a car yard.
A crane was brought in to help firefighters put out the flames.
Two crews remain at the site this morning, dampening down hotspots.
A fire investigator is also expected there this morning to determine the circumstances of the blaze.
