A scrapyard fire in Favona, South Auckland, has caused toxic smoke, prompting a warning for residents in the area. Fire and Emergency New Zealand (FENZ) responded to the fire early in the morning, finding a large pile of scrap car parts ablaze. It is expected that the fire will be extinguished overnight. FENZ has advised people in ลŒtฤhuhu, particularly, to stay indoors with doors and windows closed to avoid the smoke.
