Tyler Perry Studios went down in flames last night after Atlanta Fire Rescue was dispatched to the studios near Greenbriar Parkway.
“The fire’s out, but the cause remains under investigation,” Capt. Jolyon Bundrige with the Atlanta Fire Department told the AJC just before 11 p.m.
Last night the AJC reports, “that several fire units were still on the scene, “conducting a damage assessment, including salvage and overhaul.”
Firefighters were able to contain the blaze to one building in the center of the 30-acre complex owned by Atlanta filmmaker Perry, Bundrige said. The first report of a fire came in at 8:41 p.m., and before it was over, more than 100 firefighters had responded to a blaze that quickly escalated to four alarms.

Also check out some pics of the tasty treats that were there as well. Tyler Perry Studios is really a place where dreams do come to life.

Black people! Why must we continuously take 3 steps forward and then 10 steps back. Ceelo is my homie but you know I guess this was a case of “Keeping it Real Going Wrong”. You know how when you were little and your parents had company & you had to put on your good clothes and be on your best behavior or you knew you was gonna get that whippen? Well, I think Ceelo forgot the Press was gonna give him that Whippen for using bad language when Tyler Perry had company, Good Company “President Barack Obama”. I guess Ceelo Green was having a Bobby Brown Moment. Check out the clip below. Notice mid-way during the song Ceelo felt a certain kinda way and switched to the Pg-version and then switched back.
