Astro Biz: Star Ice & Fuel

Star Ice & FuelMany businesses, products, and places have names rooted in space and astronomy. We’re featuring one every Tuesday on Seattle Astronomy.

This week’s Astro Biz is Star Ice & Fuel. The company has been in operation since 1888, the year before Washington became a state. They were located in downtown Tacoma for 122 years, and moved into a new facility between Fife and Federal Way in 2010.

Star Ice & Fuel makes ice: crushed, shaved, block, and dry. They also do heating oil, propane, kerosene, firewood, and wood pellets.
