Fire at Burger King on Veirs Mill Road; 2nd MoCo BK fire in a month

A second Montgomery County Burger King restaurant has experienced a fire begun in its deep fryer since early August. Last night, firefighters responded to a 911 call at the 12265 Veirs Mill Road Burger King in Silver Spring.

Upon arriving, they found a grease fire in the restaurant kitchen's deep fryers, Montgomery County Fire and Rescue spokesperson Pete Piringer said. A similar deep fryer blaze ignited in early August at a Burger King on Shady Grove Road. Last night's fire was not as severe, as firefighters were able to contain it from spreading.

No injuries were reported in last night's incident, but a health inspector had to be called in to determine if there was any reason the restaurant couldn't immediately reopen.
