Even Adjusters Couldn’t Find Any Salvage: When insurance adjusters arrived to inspect the remains of the Cascade Packing plant for possible salvage, they readily agreed that the quarter million fire had taken about everything. So intense was the heat that sections of the concrete walls had been cooked and are of no value. News photo, published above, shows the interior of the building which, before the fire, was one of the largest apple and pear packing plants in the world. — H.R.N. Photo Engraving, January 14, 1938
