The five-alarm fire spread to at least five nearby buildings in the Lawrence neighborhood on Friday night. A total of 16 families were evacuated from the fire.

“We want to extend our thoughts and prayers to the victims and their families,” said Scott Chase, U-Haul Company of Eastern Massachusetts 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.”

U-Haul has a variety of boxes and other moving supplies it is making available to assist those in need. The free supplies are available on a first-come, first-serve basis for a limited time at participating locations.

Customers needing boxes can also utilize the Take a Box, Leave a Box program. U-Haul offers an in-store area where customers can drop off used boxes in good condition, and other members of the community can access the boxes at no cost. U-Haul encourages anyone who has reusable boxes to drop them at the nearest U-Haul store location for this purpose.
