After a massive fire engulfed parts of it, sections of Interstate 85 in Atlanta collapsed March 30. Amazingly, no injuries have yet been reported to authorities yet.

Fire officials extinguished the blaze with a massive response shortly after it was reported at 6:30 p.m. EST. Parts of the bridge on I-85 north, south of Ga. 400 close to Piedmont Road collapsed around 7 p.m. EST, the Atlanta Journal Constitution reported.
Official said that they have the fire under control, but the cause of it has not yet been determined. It’s thought to have started underneath the freeway.
All lanes of that portion of the freeway remain closed as police try to redirect traffic away from the area. It appears that it will continue to be closed for quite a while until the damage can be assessed and repaired.
