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.

Something is rather strange about this fire.
You know the "W" millionaires in Hollywood does not want to recognize his success. He had the money to produce his own show.

A team of 25 firefighters, all played by Terry could not extinguish 'Tyler Perry's All my s**$ caught fire'. The blaze was produced, reported, watched and distributed by Tyler Perry.

He's kind of racist. It will be karma if it ends up arson by a black person ... or maybe arson by some old black lady

I hope Tyler Perry had enough Insurance on his Studio Facility, if so it's a minor setback on his productions – for the new one think steel
