Australian authorities have told residents to evacuate more than 100 homes in Melbourne as a huge fire sends hazardous smoke across the city.

Four people have been taken to hospital and a further eight treated for asthma symptoms since the fire began at a recycling plant on Thursday.

Described by authorities as "the size of a sports field", the fire is likely to burn for at least two more days.

It has cast smoke and ash as far as 15km away.
