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.

Did you know most "hate crimes" are hoaxes by the alleged victim looking for sympathy?

Must have been some white devil broke into that studio and set dem fires. And them racist white firefighters risking their white lives to go in that fire and put it out. Sound stupid? Just as stupid as this clown crying racism when he gets pulled over and claims racial profiling.

I use to watch some of his movies and I would watch his tv shows. I refuse to watch anything of his now because he pulled that racist bull crap when he got a ticket. Stupid racist. Watch everything burn ! If this was months ago, I would feel bad for you. Now I laugh at you, racist !

What is the goal of posting comments on here, to see who can be the meanest or nastiest person? Every time I come here to comment all I see is mean negative comments...never a nice word.

What else would you expect from "ENVIOUS AZZ LOSERS" AND "RACE BAITERS"??? When people "DON'T LIKE THEMSELVES", it's almost impossible for them to render a "NON BIASED" opinion regarding a "TRAGIC EVENT" that happens to someone who actually has achieved the "LEVEL OF SUCCESS" they could only DREAM ABOUT!!! Regardless of whether "ANYONE" appreciates Tyler Perry's artistic endeavors -- HE'S A GENUINE AMERICAN SUCCESS STORY, PERIOD!!! In the WOEFULLY WARPED MINDS of TOO MANY "non African Americans", we're not suppose to be "SUCCESSFUL" ON "ANY" LEVEL!!! HOWEVER, CREAM ALWAYS RISES TO THE TOP, REGARDLESS OF WHERE IT STARTS OUT!!! The "OPPORTUNITIES" are there but EVERYONE HAS TO "PAY THEIR DUES"!!! Tyler Perry "PAID HIS" and he's DONE QUITE WELL and "WILL REBOUND" from this MINOR SETBACK!!!

Just the devil trying to stop the good he's doing by spreading the word in his movies. And yes, I went there (for those who are going to respond). Thank God no one was injured, which is the most important thing. Everyone suffers setbacks but I'm sure Tyler Perry will be fine.

A message to blacks (via South Park). It is not required by law for you to watch and think Tyler Perry movies are funny? It doesn't make you less black if you don't like him. If you stop giving him money he will go away.
