2 vehicles, including FedEx truck, catch fire, blocking interstates for hours

Two vehicle fires blocked two interstates, causing headaches for drivers in the metro area late Tuesday night.

The lanes have since reopened.

The first car is in flames on I-675 in Clayton County. The southbound lanes are blocked at Macon Highway at Exit 2.

The Channel 2 Action News assignment desk is making calls to find out if anyone is hurt, or how long it could take for roadways to clear. We checked traffic on Google Maps and it shows cars backed up for more than a mile.


Triple Team Traffic encourages drivers to use US 23 or I-75 as an alternate route.

Video we showed you on the Channel 2 Action News Nightbeat at 11 taken from North Fulton County shows a FedEx truck on fire on 285, the inner loop at Glenridge Drive. That is at Exit 26.
