Jason Merritt/Getty Images(ATLANTA) — A fire broke out at Tyler Perry Studios in Atlanta on Tuesday night, causing one building at the complex to partially collapse.

The cause of the four-alarm blaze — which started before 9 p.m. and was extinguished by the Atlanta Fire Department about an hour later — was not immediately known. No injuries were reported.

Tyler Perry checked out the damage at the complex Tuesday night, but he has yet to publicly address the fire.

The 200-thousand-square-foot complex includes five sound stages and a 400-seat theater. In March, Cee Lo Green performed there for a President Obama fundraiser.

It’s unclear whether any productions will be affected by the fire.
