The fire at Rocks Mountain in Shenandoah National Park continues to burn, but firefighters made sure to contain it within the park's boundaries before the winter storm hits.
The fire has grown to 150 acres after first being reported on Friday afternoon. The cause of the fire is still unknown.
The National Park Service says fire managers will continue to monitor the fire and take actions as needed, depending upon the severity of the storm.
The RipRap, Wildcat Ridge and Rocks Mountain trails continue to remain closed to ensure safety.
Nearly 100 people from a number of agencies have been working to retain the fire, and the park service has requested more.
