WALLINGFORD, Conn., March 19. - The shop of the Wallingford Wheel Company was found to be on fire at 8 o'clock last evening, and by 9 o'clock was burned to the ground. The fire broke out in an addition over the engine-room, but the engineer is confident that it did not catch from the furnace. The building had been unoccupied since 5:30 o'clock. It was a wooden shop, three stories in height, and 40 by 90 feet, and had two wings each about 30 feet square and two stories in height. The loss is estimated at from $40,000 to $50,000, and the insurance is said to be $36,000. The silverware shop of Hall, Elton & Co., adjoining the burned shop, had a narrow escape. The principal stockholders are E. S. Parmelee and B. A. Treat, both of this place.
