B Secured Self Storage in Angels Camp, Calif., donated free use of eight units for a flea-market last weekend benefiting victims of the Butte Fire, which recently destroyed hundreds of homes in Amador and Calaveras counties. Donations poured in from around the country for the event at 2999 Highway 49, Oct. 30-Nov. 1, the source reported. Victims of the fire were able to pick up a variety of items for free, including clothing, furniture, holiday decorations and shoes.
"These people have absolutely nothing, and a lot of them were uninsured and under-insured, and it's like ‘What can we do to make their lives easier?’” said Susan Yoder, one of the event’s coordinators.
The Butte Fire began on Sept. 9 and burned nearly 71,000 acres. It also damaged or destroyed 475 residences, 343 outbuildings and 45 structures. It was contained by firefighters on Oct. 15.
B Secured Self Storage also operates a storage property in Copperopolis, Calif. Property features include perimeter fencing, the sale of moving and packing supplies, security cameras, and truck rental. The Angels Camp facility also offers boat and RV storage and a wash station.
