Where is the fiery Atlanta I-85 bridge 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.

According to Atlanta fire spokesman Sgt. Cortez Stafford, the fire was on a bridge — I-85 northbound just south of Ga. 400 near Piedmont Road.

If you’re on the road, the Google Map below shows the I-85 and Buford Spring Connector entrances and exits marked for closures. 

Keep an eye on GDOT feeds and Google/Waze for additional reports.

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.
