Jason Merritt/Getty Images(ATLANTA) — The latest fire at Tyler Perry’s studios in Atlanta was caused by “careless smoking,” according to fire investigators. Currently, no one is facing criminal charges in connection with the incident.

Monday’s fire was confined to a roof of a building at the complex that is undergoing repairs. No injuries were reported, and the building did not suffer structural damage.

In early May, a building at the complex partially collapsed due to a fire. It’s unclear if Monday’s fire occurred at the same building.
