Overpass Collapses as Crews Battle Massive Fire


ATLANTA (WSB) – A large fire has caused an overpass on Interstate 85 to collapse.

The massive blaze that is burning underneath I-85 NB near Piedmont Road has shut down several roads in northeast Atlanta.

Witnesses say troopers were telling cars to turn around on the bridge because they were concerned about its integrity. Minutes later, the bridge collapsed.

Black smoke can been seen for miles. 

Traffic is at a standstill on I-85.
