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. It was moved to its current location in 2008.

Fire trucks circled what appeared to be the Ruby Dee-Ossie Davis studio, the Cicely Tyson studio and the Sidney Poitier studio.

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.

Several eyewitnesses said they could see the fire from afar. Some said that they thought it was a part of a film production until they saw the fire trucks move in.

Tyler Perry was on the scene surveying the damage Tuesday night and returned to the scene of the fire on Wednesday. He has made no comment on the fire.

Spike's s*** ain't all clean either... Once upon a time his movies were considered hood & a disgrace to blacks as well... Did he ever pay everyone back for Malcolm X?
