House of India Damaged by Smoke

House of India, the popular Coral Gables restaurant that has delivered kormas, curries, and kabobs to diners for 35 years, is cordoned off this morning as police and firefighters investigate the damage caused by smoke late last night. The glass entrance door was shattered by firefighters. No injuries have been reported.

"I went home at 10 o'clock. My son closed the restaurant at 11," reports co-owner Darshan Singh. "No one was in there."

Sirens wailed at 6:25 a.m. as multiple agencies responded to calls. As of 9:45 a.m. Saturday, the cause and extent of the damage was yet to be determined. Singh was not permitted to enter the building this morning. Police and firefighters would not share any more information, but Singh said no source for the smoke has been determined.

Short Order will report on the progress of the investigation as information becomes available.
