Fire officer S. Pawar said the third and fourth floors of the five-story building were engulfed before six fire engines extinguished the blaze in an hour.
A New Delhi television news channel said seven people suffered burns and were taken to a hospital.
Firefighters rescued 11 people trapped on the floors affected by the fire. The cause was being investigated, Pawar said.
