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.

Funniest thing about Tyler Perry is when South Park mocked him; every time he came on the screen Token would laugh uncontrollably and give him money and be unable to explain why he felt compelled to do so. Then the episode ended with them burying him alive in cement for the good of the human race

Irrespective of how I feel about TP movies, I will not rejoice or cheer a fire. Lives could have been lost, the surrounding areas & people were in danger, firefighters put their lives at risk for this 4 alarm fire not to mention jobs are now lost.


Those of you who have cheered and joked about this fire should be ashamed because it could have been YOUR home, business, neighborhood and then see how funny it all would be. I am sure those affected by it are not cheering.
