Firefighters spent the night battling a blaze on more than 100 acres of trees and brush atop Afton Mountain.
Crews evacuated more than 20 homes earlier yesterday.
Firefighters were able to save all the homes and everyone returned home.
Forest Service officials say a recent ice storm broke many trees in half, leaving them on the forest floor-
Those branches are now feeding the fire and creating problems for firefighters.

Firefighters have managed to set up a containment line around a blaze that threatened 20 homes on Afton Mountain yesterday.
The fire started yesterday near the base of the mountain on the Waynesboro side and began burning quickly toward the houses before the line was set up.
One house had minor damage when its roof was singed, though no one was injured.
Authorities say strong winds and dead limbs from winter ice storms helped the fire to spread.
They're hoping that rain predicted today will help bring it under control.
The cause is under investigation.
