Tyler Perry's kingdom is on fire -- and not in a good way ... the Atlanta studio complex where his popular "Madea" movies are shot caught fire Tuesday night.

According to reports, the three-alarm blaze broke out at Tyler Perry studios shortly before 9PM ET -- and one building had partially collapsed.

The studio sits on 60 acres of land and includes five soundstages, a backlot ... as well as Perry's offices.

There were no immediate reports of injuries, and it's unclear what started the fire.

Studio belonging to Tyler Perry caught fire.

Interesting thing is, another studio in Atlanta housing tons of classic movies props went up not to long ago.
Hopefully they're looking into arson.

What's really remarkable is the amount shlock he actually got paid to produce. If there was ever convincing evidence that this countries mean IQ has taken a dramatic turn for the worse, it was Tyler Perry's success.

No doubt he feels he was profiled -- again.
