WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) - Nearly a year has past since a well known restaurant in Wilmington was destroyed in a fire.
On November 12, 2008, Valino's Restaurant and Martha's Karaoke Lounge on Carolina Beach Road burned an early morning fire.
Employees stood in disbelief as they watched the blaze in disbelief. After the fire, owners said they would re-build the restaurant so their customers would have some place to come back to.
Now, Schreiner's Restaurant and Karaoke Bar stands in place of Valino's, and opened a few weeks ago. The new business is owned and named after the same people who owned Valino's.
