A fire broke at least in one of the building of TV/film maker Tyler Perryâ€™s studio complex in Southwest Atlanta before 9 p.m. on Tuesday (May 1). More than a hundred firefighters were called to the scene to control the fire.
The cause of the fire is still unknown, but an investigation was opened. Tyler was reportedly at the studio complex working at the time, but he is okay, according to Captain Jolyon Bundridge.
“As far as I know, [Perry] is OK — there was a report that he was on the scene, but I didn’t see him,” Bundrige told The Times.
Tylerâ€™s Atlanta complex includes a 200,000 square-foot studio, five sound stages and a 400 seat theater. The fire was allegedly restricted to one building in the center of the complex. Fortunately, no injuries were reported.
