After a devastating fire destroyed their Wilmington restaurant, the owners of Valinos are moving forward. A crane began tearing down the remains of the building today. Investigators say an electrical malfunction in a dining room light fixture caused the restaurant to burn to the ground. Now, owners are looking forward to building a brand new facility to continue the Valinos tradition. Donna Schreiner, owner, said, "We are excited too, you know it was sad, but you know it happened for a reason, but now we'll have a brand new building and hopefully new people will be coming in, wanting to check it out so." The fire damage is covered by insurance. The owners were meeting with their architect today to discuss the new restaurant plans.
