A car fire has blocked multiple lanes headed south on Auckland's south-western motorway just before Mangere Bridge.

Traffic headed south has been reduced to one lane by the dramatic fire and footage from the scene shows smoke billowing into the air.

Emergency services are currently at the scene. Motorists are advised to avoid the area if possible and expect delays.
