A fire broke out Saturday night near a mobile home community in Rye, AZ, off of Highway 87 going to Payson destroying six structures, according to residents.

According to Payson Fire Battalion Chief Dan Bramble five of the structures were residences.

Kayla Hall, a lifelong resident, said the fire broke out behind a bike shop that is right next to Rye Trailer Park.

Officials said it broke out around 8 p.m. Saturday night at the All Bike Sales which is a complete lost.

"I was heading out of Payson because we're just coming out. We saw a huge fire," Hall said.

She told CBS 5 her family is getting prepared just in case.

"We are packing up right now. Just in case it comes, we got dogs and valuables that we cherish. We're packing it up in our motor home," said Kayla Hall.

Dannel Loy, another Rye resident, said she was also taking extra measures.

"I'm going to load up my dog and some of my valuables into my motor home and move them a little farther, across the wash," said Loy.

She said several people in the community are worried.

The Red Cross said several people were staying in shelters on Sunday after 20 to 30 people were evacuated around 9 p.m. Saturday night.

The cause is still undetermined
