Four-alarm blaze breaks out at Tyler Perry Studios in Atlanta
UPDATE (10:59 PM): The blaze has been extinguished by fire crews. There were no reports of injuries, though one building on the complex partially collapsed from the inferno.
ATLANTA (AP) — Atlanta fire officials say they are fighting a 4-alarm blaze at Tyler Perry Studios that has damaged a building on the complex.
Atlanta Fire Department spokesman Capt. Jolyon Bundrige says the fire happened before 9 p.m. Tuesday and there have been no immediate reports of injuries.
He says the cause of the fire was not immediately known.
The studio's website says it includes a 200,000-square-foot studio, five sound stages and a 400-seat theater in southwest Atlanta.
In March, pop star Cee Lo performed for donors at a fundraiser for President Barack Obama at the studios.
