Firefighters are battling a massive blaze that has engulfed a factory in inner-city Melbourne with large plumes of black smoke seen from nearby suburbs.

Crews were called to John Street in Brunswick East on Thursday afternoon and arrived to find the Alpha Trading wholesale premises well alight.

Extraordinary photos and footage show the blaze threatening to spread to the adjoining block of apartments.

Flames and billowing smoke can be seen from nearby suburbs.

Oscar from Fitzroy told 3AW he’s ‘never seen smoke like this’.

‘It’s getting worse as well,’ he said.

Jill was at Armadale Train Station when she noticed ‘huge, big black plumes’

‘It’s massive, I’ve never seen anything like it,’ she said.

More to come.
