As an adjuster for a Seattle insurance firm Horace Sykes specialty was fires. He wrote about them, lectured around the state about them, and sometimes “chased” them as an adjuster. Sykes names this ruins the “Columbia Cold Storage Company” and he dates it “April 5, 1944.” However, he does not tell us where it is. Wherever, the odd effects of a structure filled with ice and still destroyed by fire are odd.
