The fire broke out at Toll House Auto Body, located at 4535 Baltimore Pike.
Owner Dan Barr was on his way back to the building when he saw smoke rising outside of the building from the soda machine's cord, he said. He put out most of the flames with a fire extinguisher and then called the fire department to extinguish the rest and check the building.
The fire burned part of the business's exterior siding. The soda machine company is coming to inspect the damage, Barr said.
Littlestown Fire Department officials were not immediately available for comment.
