The Covington News - - THE WIRE -

CARTERSVILLE, Ga. (AP) — Au­thor­i­ties say a fire aboard a char­ter bus car­ry­ing Boy Scouts closed two lanes of south­bound In­ter­state 75 in Bar­tow County north­west of At­lanta, leading to lengthy de­lays.

Bar­tow County sher­iff’s Sgt. Jonathan Rogers said there were no ma­jor in­juries in the Satur­day fire -- only com­plaints of smoke in­hala­tion.

Rogers tells The At­lanta Jour­nal-Con­sti­tu­tion that there was no ac­ci­dent in­volved. Rather, he said the fire took place on the bus as it was rolling down the in­ter­state.
