Camp Fire Evacuees: U-Haul Extends 30 Days Free Self-Storage in Red Bluff
YUBA CITY, Calif. (Nov. 9, 2018) — U-Haul Company of Northwest California is making its Red Bluff facility available to offer 30 days of free self-storage to residents impacted by the Camp Fire.
The massive Butte County blaze had consumed more than 70,000 acres and displaced tens of thousands of residents by Friday morning.
“Most of the City of Paradise is gone, and it’s pretty much chaos coming out of there,” noted Chris Watson, U-Haul Company of Northwest California president. “A lot of families have lost their homes. Thousands more have been evacuated. I have four Team Members who live up there who aren’t sure if they’ve lost their homes. It’s devastating.
“As a good corporate citizen and caring neighbor, we want to help however we can in times of need.”
Families seeking additional information about the disaster relief assistance or needing to arrange for 30 days free self-storage should contact:
