U-Haul® is offering 30 days of free self-storage to Arizona residents impacted by the Central Fire in New River and the Aquila Fire just south of Anthem.
The Central Fire has burned approximately 4,000 acres with 23% containment. The Aquila Fire has grown to 1,000 acres. Officials have asked residents to evacuate.
“These fires started quickly and are continuing to burn through brush and heavy vegetation,” stated Jesse Ashdown, U-Haul Company of Northwest Phoenix president. “With evacuation orders in place, people are in need of storage space to protect their belongings.”
