A major fire at Bombay Gaylord restaurant in Silver Spring has damaged not only the restaurant but its two neighbors, including Quarry House Tavern and Mandarin Restaurant.
The Montgomery County Fire Department spokesman called damages "significant" on Twitter. More than 100 firefighters responded to the scene early this morning. They're suspecting an electrical issue may have started the blaze, though the cause is still under investigation. One firefighter sustained minor injuries.
The fire department is estimating more than $750,000 worth of damage from the incident. Eater has reached out to the restaurants involved for any further information on how they've been affected.

UPDATE: The Washington Post has more information about the blaze, writing that Mandarin Restaurant reopened for business at 2 p.m. today. Co-owner of the Quarry House Gordon Banks said that it was too soon to know when the Quarry House could reopen, and if it wasn't soon, they'd do a pop-up at Jackie Greenbaum's nearby Sidebar.
