Hartford Apartment Fire: U-Haul Offers 30 Days Free Self-Storage to Victims

HARTFORD, Conn. (March 9, 2020) — U-Haul® is offering 30 days of free self-storage to residents who have been displaced or impacted by a fire at a five-story apartment building in Hartford.

“We want to extend our thoughts and prayers to the victims and their families,” said Levi Parmerter, U-Haul area district vice president. “Homes have been affected and we want to support this community by offering a secure place for their belongings to be stored while they begin the process of rebuilding.”
