The video above is a series of still pictures provided to STATter911.com of the fire inside Tyler Perry Studios on Tuesday evening. Atlanta Fire Rescue sounded four alarms to handle the blaze.
Investigators are trying to determine the cause of a fire that ripped through a simulated streetscape at Tyler Perry’s Atlanta studios.
The fire sent flames soaring about six stories high into the night sky. Officials say no one was hurt from the blaze that began shortly before 9 p.m.
An Atlanta fire captain says the fire never reached inside the building because of its concrete masonry behind the facade but there is some water damage.
More than 100 firefighters responded to the four-alarm fire. Perry was at the complex last night and spoke with the city fire chief.
The complex includes a 200,000-square-foot studio, five sound stages and a 400-seat theater in southwest Atlanta.
Pop star Cee Lo performed at a fundraiser for President Obama at the studios in March.
