If you've been displaced by the wildfires that are raving the Northwest, U-Haul is stepping up to help you out by offering free storage for 30 days.

When I was in 5th grade, my family lost our house to a fire and it was devastating. We didn't have much left but we did need some storage and I wish we had the advantage of U-Haul at the time. U-Haul is helping out and they've got several locations in Yakima and the Tri-Cities open as well.

U-Haul released a press release and talked about offering 30 days of free storage for those in need - here is what the press release said:

U-Haul® is offering 30 days of free self-storage to residents being impacted by wildfires across the Pacific Northwest.

Strong winds and dry conditions are fueling hundreds of active fires in the area. Millions of acres have been burned and many residential areas are facing evacuation orders.

“We’re facing a truly historic outbreak of wildfires in the Pacific Northwest,” said Dan Flatten, U-Haul Company of Southern Washington president. “Evacuation orders are creating an immediate need for secure self-storage options where people can bring their valued possessions. We’re a longstanding member of these communities and we’re here to help those in need.”

Local U-Haul Companies have made 25 stores – 15 in Oregon and 10 in Washington – available to offer assistance.

People seeking more information about the U-Haul disaster relief program or needing to arrange 30 days of free self-storage should contact the nearest participating location:
