Fire and Rescue crews remain on the scene of a Somersby blaze this morning, burning through a massive pile of rubbish for more than 12 hours.

Emergency services were called out around 5:40pm, with around half a dozen recycling plant workers were evacuated at the Pile Road site.

Eight trucks are currently battling the inferno, while our firies' hard work has ensured several sheds didn't go up in flames.

A Hazmat team is checking out the air quality and water run off for any contamination.

Crews are expected to spend the next three to four hours on the scene, in a bid to extinguish the fire.
