The blaze erupted around 10.40 pm on Sunday in the unit located on plot no. S-89 in Hingna industrial area here in Maharashtra, Nagpur Municipal Corporation's chief fire officer Rajendra Uchke said in a release.
There was no report of any casualty so far, he said.
Due to the intense heat of the blaze, the ground floor and two upper floors of the structure collapsed, he said.
Ten fire tenders were deployed at the spot, he said, adding that wax and alcohol stored in the premises were making it difficult to douse the flames.
''About 70 percent area of the industry was affected due to the fire,'' the official said.
Fire-fighting was still underway, he said, adding that the cause of the blaze was yet to be ascertained.
