ATLANTA – A four alarm fire damaged the huge Tyler Perry studio complex in southwest Atlanta on Tuesday.
It took over 100 firefighters and at least 20 trucks slightly over one hour to put out the blaze that started around 8:40 p.m., according to Atlanta fire officials.
There were no reports of injuries, according to Atlanta Fire Department Capt. J. L. Bundrige.
According to the studio website, the sprawling 200,000 square feet facility features five sound stages, a post-production facility, a back lot, a 400-seat theater, a private screening room and designated areas for entertaining and hosting events.
When SKYFOX 5 flew over the studios on Wednesday, two buildings appeared to be damaged by the fire. Fire officials said there was partial collapse to the front area of one building. It was unknown if the fire would affect any productions.
