One person is in hospital in a moderate condition this evening following a fire at a metal factory in Auckland.

As many as eight fire crews attended the blaze at Hayes Metals on Neilson Street in the suburb of Onehunga.

The authorites were alerted to the fire at approximately 8:37pm

According to a report by Stuff, the building was successfully evacuated, with one person taken to hospital with smoke inhalation injuries.

It is understood a piece of copper coil caught fire inside the premises, and has since been removed. 

A fire service spokesman told Stuff that ventilation was being carried out, but that the blaze was now "scaling down".
