Famed Producer Tyler Perry’s studios caught fire and severe damage is being reported by news affiliates in Atlanta.
Capt. Jolyon Bundridge with the Atlanta Fire Rescue told the AJC shortly after 9 p.m. that one building had partially collapsed.
By 10 p.m., the flames were extinguished, but firefighters continued to battle hot spots, and at least a dozen fire trucks lined Continental Colony Parkway, Channel 2 Action News reported.
There was no immediate word on the cause of the fire. No injuries were reported.
The 200,000-square foot studio, which opened in 2008 on 30 acres, is home to sets, 4 sound stages and a 400-seat theater. In March, Atlanta filmmaker Perry hosted a fundraiser for President Barack Obama at the studio.
Perry has worked as director, writer, producer, actor and playwright. His film credits include “Diary of a Mad Black Woman,” “Meet the Browns,” and “I Can Do Bad All By Myself.”
His latest movie, “Madea’s Witness Protection,” is scheduled to open June 29.
Lets keep Tyler in prayer and please return for updates.
