A two-alarm fire damaged three Silver Spring restaurants early Thursday. More than 100 firefighters responded to the 8400 block of Georgia Avenue.
The Bombay Gaylord restaurant had its dining area destroyed by the fire. The Quarry House Tavern, located on the basement level of the Bombay Gaylord, and the Mandarin Chinese restaurant next door were also damaged.
Pete Piringer, a spokesman for the Montgomery County Fire Department, says the fire which was estimated to cause $750,000 in damage was probably electrical in nature.
