(KMOV.com) – The Belleville RV and Mobile Home Estates is being evacuated due to the extreme rain and flooding in the St. Louis area.

The mobile home park is located at 141 and Fiedler Lane in Jefferson County. There are no reports of any injuries at this time, but officials say some residents are refusing to leave.

"We just got on the phone and told people they need to get out," said Phil Tracy, the owner of the property. "It's Mother Nature at its best." 88 RVs are stored here, along with 39 spaces for overnight campers. Firefighters assisted anyone who was willing to evacuate.

The high water threatening the homes is coming from Saline Creek, which is north of the park.
