I saw a triangular shaped craft while driving through Payson, AZ.

I was driving on AZ-260 near the RX wildfire, heading towards Holbrook. I looked to my left and saw a triangular shaped craft hovering in the smoke with lights visible (before the 260 Trailhead turn off). There was no noise such as propellers, jet engines, or helicopter blades. The craft didn't move but remained stationary. I later drove back in an attempt to get a picture but by then it was gone.

I later heard a propeller driven plane at 6:10 PM but am not sure if this is related to my sighting.
