Firefighters have brought a large factory fire at Moorebank under control following a night-long battle.

Crews remain on scene attending to various hotspots that remain burning in the building and are expected to remain for most of the day until the fire is extinguished.

HAZMAT crews are also on scene managing the water runoff to minimise the effect on local waterways and the environment.

The fire continues to generate a large amount of smoke and FRNSW have urged local residents to stay indoors where possible especially if they have respiratory issues.

Over one-hundred Fire and Rescue NSW Firefighters are currently working to contain a fire inside a factory at Moorebank.

At around 6:30pm Fire and Rescue NSW crews from Liverpool arrived at the Church Road address to find a large amount of cardboard alight at the rear of the factory.

The fire quickly extended throughout the building and additional resources were called from across the Greater Sydney Area.

A Hytans vehicle is in attendance and working to move as much water as possible to the firefighters who are working with hand-lines and ladder trucks.

Firefighting operations are continuing and will go into most of tomorrow.
