Tyler Perry’s Studios in Atlanta Engulfed by Four-Alarm Fire

ALTFirefighters responded to a four-alarm fire at Tyler Perry‘s studio in Atlanta late Tuesday night. According to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, the first report came in at 8:41 p.m., with firetrucks remaining on the scene until 7:30 the next morning.
