A major fire engulfed a large paint factory on Hosur Main Road in Bangalore on Thursday.
At least 24 fire sngines have reportedly been pressed into service to put the blaze out, television channels said.
There was nobody inside the factory when the fire began, fire safety officials said.
The flames in the building are said to be massive because of the chemicals and paints stored in the warehouse.
Traffic going towards Hosur Main Road has been diverted.
Further details are awaited. (ANI)
