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. More than 100 firefighters responded to the scene.

No injuries were reported from the fire — but the blaze did damage two buildings (causing one building to partially collapse). Perry himself inspected the scene both Tuesday night and Wednesday morning, but has yet to offer comment on the situation. His employees have also been instructed not to speak to the press.

The 200,000 square-foot studio, which first opened opened it's doors in 2008, is where Perry shoots his Madea movies. The studio was also the site of a fundraiser for President Barack Obama back in March.

As of now, the cause of the fire remains under investigation.
