Portion of interstate in Georgia collapses from fire

ATLANTA, GA -

An interstate overpass in Georgia collapsed from a fire.

Officials said the fire is burning underneath Interstate 85 north bound near Piedmont Road in Atlanta.

Several roads are shut down because of the fire and collapse. You can see black smoke billowing into the sky and traffic is backed up for miles.

Witnesses said just before the bridge collapsed, troopers were telling cars to turn around on the bridge because they were concerned about its integrity.
