Atlanta Fire Department spokesman Capt. Jolyon Bundrige says there were no reports of injuries from the fire that started before 9 PM Tuesday at Tyler Perry Studios. Officials said in a news release it was extinguished about an hour later.

 

He says the cause of the fire and the amount of damage to the complex was not immediately known.

 

A spokesman for Perry didn’t immediately comment Tuesday evening. The studio’s website says the complex 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.
