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. <br />
Bartow County sheriff's Sgt. Jonathan Rogers said there were no major injuries in the Saturday fire -- only complaints of smoke inhalation. <br />
Rogers tells The Atlanta Journal-Constitution (http://on-ajc.com/1qMKJyF) that there was no accident involved. Rather, he said the fire took place on the bus as it was rolling down the interstate. <br />
Rogers said he didn't know how the fire started or how many Boy Scouts were on the bus. <br />
He said the two lanes were blocked near Mile Post 291, about 40 miles northwest of Atlanta.
