Passers-by were stunned as thick smoke billowed into the sky above the town.
Understood to have started in a spray oven, flames could soon be seen coming from the roof of Paddock Wood Auto Repairs in Maidstone Road.
Three fire crews, two from Tonbridge and one from Paddock Wood attended the scene at 2pm.
Despite the dramatic scenes, the fire was extinguished using hose reel jets within the hour.
Nobody was hurt during the fire.
