TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Five people were displaced when their home was destroyed by fire Monday in the Helmet Peak Fire District.

According to the Rural/Metro Fire Department, the fire was in a mobile home in the 3000 block of West Camino del Yucca, west of Sahuarita.

Because of the lack of fire hydrants in the area, water tenders from Rural/Metro, Green Valley Fire District and Helmet Peak Fire Department were used in a tender shuttle for water supply.

One person was evaluated for injury, but was not transported to the hospital.

The cause of the fire has not yet been determined.

The Red Cross will assist the displaced occupants of the home.
