A messy situation for the ATLiens.

Atlanta residents may face a travel nightmare after a massive fire caused an overpass on Interstate 85 in Atlanta to collapse, shuttering the major thoroughfare.

No injuries were reported and no cars were on the highway bridge when it fell during Thursday afternoon’s rush hour, said Atlanta Fire Department spokesman Sgt. Cortez Stafford, according to The Associated Press. Once officials noticed that the concrete roadway was compromised by the blaze, they pulled firefighters away just a couple of minutes before it collapsed, Stafford said at a news conference Thursday evening.
