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.

I am an old white woman, but I LOVE me some Tyler Perry. He makes me laugh and I am so distraught over his loss.

Tyler, you might think that you are speaking ONLY to African-American women, but I promise you that MANY, MANY of us experience the same family problems as your characters. Only we are not nearly as funny.

You make me laugh!!!!!
