OAKLAND, Calif., Oct. 29, 2019 /PRNewswire ---

U-Haul® is offering 30 days of free self-storage and U-Box® container usage to residents affected by the ongoing wildfires in California.

Tens of thousands of people have been forced to flee their homes in northern California, while many more are without electricity after utility providers shut off power lines to prevent sparking more fires.

"The wind is picking up and making these fires difficult to fight," stated Jerry Owen, U-Haul Company of East Bay president. "Our neighbors are in need of a secure place to store their belongings as they evacuate affected areas. We want to help these communities by offering one month of storage at no cost."

U-Haul Companies of East Bay, East Sacramento, Fresno, Northwest California, Northern Nevada, San Bernardino, San Francisco, South Bay, Van Nuys/San Luis Obispo and West Sacramento have made 39 facilities available to offer the disaster relief assistance program.

People seeking additional information or needing to arrange 30 days free self-storage should contact the nearest participating U-Haul facility (locations alphabetized by city):
