Holy Fire Evacuees: U-Haul Offering 30 Days Free Self-Storage in Southern California

TEMECULA, Calif. (Aug. 9, 2018) — Three U-Haul Companies in Southern California are extending 30 days of free self-storage and U-Box container usage to residents affected by the Holy Fire.

Some 20,000 residents are under mandatory evacuation orders from the wildfire that was started earlier this week and has consumed more than 9,600 acres.

“This fire is raging on the border of Orange and Riverside counties,” U-Haul Area District Vice President Eric Crocker said. “Thousands of people have been forced from their homes. As a compassionate member of these communities, we want to offer a secure place for our neighbors to store their belongings at no charge for 30 days.”

U-Haul Companies of Orange County, Riverside and Oceanside have made five facilities across five cities available for the 30 days free disaster relief assistance program. Families seeking self-storage assistance should contact the nearest participating U-Haul facility:
