Firefighters are battling blazes across Sydney with more than 100 firefighters at a large factory fire.

Elsewhere, people had to be rescued from the balconies of their Darlinghurst apartment block that was alight.

Fire and Rescue NSW Superindentent Scott Dodson told Ben Fordham they’ve evacuated seven people from the Flinders St terrace.

Meanwhile, more than 100 firefighters are battling a blaze at a Prestons factory on Hoxton Park Road.

The factory contained fluids such as ethanol and nearby residents are being advised to keep their windows closed.

“Traffic around the area will be a nightmare for the rest of the day,” Mr Dodson said.
