Bighorn Fire Victims: U-Haul Offers 30 Days Free Self-Storage

Jun 11, 2020

U-Haul® is offering 30 days of free self-storage and U-Box® container usage to residents impacted by the Bighorn Fire in the Santa Catalina Mountains north of Tucson.

The fire has burned nearly 5,000 acres this week, reports indicated Thursday morning. The Pima County Sheriff’s Department and Pima County Office of Emergency Management have ordered residents to evacuate in a northern section of the Catalina Foothills.

“As the Bighorn Fire continues to spread, people are now having to leave their homes and may need a secure facility to store their valued belongings,” stated Billy Longenbaugh, U-Haul Company of Southern Arizona president. “We want our neighbors and the City of Tucson to know that we’re here to help. Any displaced families needing free self-storage for one month can make use of our disaster relief program.”
