After a fire - Tenant property

A month ago tomorrow we had a fire at one of our properties in Milwaukee.  Our property manager dropped the ball in a million ways so we fired them and are now trying to get an idea of where we are at with everything.

Before we can do a dry out we need the tenant's personal items removed.  Tenant #1 has a phone no longer in service.  Tenant #2 has not returned our calls.  Tenant #3 I am talking to later today.

We would like their stuff out by Monday, but have no idea what they were told in terms of deadlines or expectations (The old PM would probably be lying anyway if I asked)

Can we just offer to move it to a storage facility for a month and pay for it?  Is there a legal requirement for getting their stuff out?  What have you done in this situation?
