Fire crews are battling a blaze of earthquake rubble at a Christchurch landfill that's been burning all night.

The fire at the Burwood Resources Recovery Park is not under control but it is contained to one area and is expected to burn all day, the Fire Service says.

The blaze can be seen from the Port Hills and aircraft have reported seeing it from the sky also.

The Fire Service is hoping the wind will change soon and the smoke will go out to sea.
