'Best bet out of city': MARTA unaffected by I-85 fire, collapse

Around 7 p.m. Thursday, crews were battling a massive fire on I-85 northbound just south of Ga. 400 when a section of the highway collapsed, officials said.

Fire officials extinguished it on Thursday night after it burned for more than an hour, fire officials said.

Spokesman Eric Burton said all MARTA trains are running as normal and have not been affected by the fire.

“MARTA seems like your best bet to get out of the city,” Burton said.

MARTA trains will run more frequently to accommodate an expected increase in passengers. Extra employees will be on hand to assist passengers.

Delays were reported Thursday night on MARTA bus routes 27, 6, 33, 30 and 47.
