Tyler Perry‘s Atlanta filmmaker complex was ablaze on Tuesday (May 1). The Associated Press confirms that the four-alarm fire drew in over 100 firefighters who stopped the flames that attempted to takeover a 200,000 square-foot studio, five sound staged and a 400-seat theatre.
The fire took place before 9 p.m. last night; however, no injuries were reported.
Us Magazine says Perry spoke with fire department officials. His statement below:
“Atlanta firefighters responded immediately to a fire which damaged the backlot façade of one of the buildings at Tyler Perry Studios in Atlanta. We are grateful that there were no injuries, and that 99 percent of the damage is limited to the backlot facade.
