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.

Tyler is the biggest "Flame" ever. He probably brushed up against a curtian or something.

Why does he feel the need to put his name in front of the titles of all those mediocre movies he makes? I feel it is very self absorbed and pretentious. You don't see Scorsese calling his movie Martin Scorsese's Goodfellas? You get the feeling Tyler Perry is in love with himself

I had thought some time ago how long was it going to take before someone damage his studios. This business is cut throat and if you are doing your own thing it will not work for long.

Witnesses on the scene said there was a huge explosion before the fire. Tyler Perry was also on the scene. Straight from the A website is talking to people and are there at the scene:

I am sure it was insured by the Tyler Perry insurance group as a subsidiary of Tyler Perry enterprises while backed by the Tyler Perry fund for Tyler Perry projects
