Firefighters will remain at the scene of a massive fire at the Sky City Convention Centre overnight fighting the fire.
Fire and Emergency NZ says flames will be visible as they let some areas burn so firefighters can get inside. This is nothing to be concerned about.
People are asked to stay away from the immediate area to let emergency services work and follow the health advice of Auckland Regional Public Health Service.
City centre residents have been warned to stay indoors and keep windows closed, shut down external ventilation if smoke is being drawn into their building and wipe down surfaces – especially food preparation and cooking surfaces – in areas affected.
People have also been advised to see a doctor or seek medical assistance if smoke has caused shortness of breath or worsening of asthma symptoms.
