ALL ACCESS has learned that the TYLER PERRY movie studios in ATLANTA suffered from another fire late last night. No injuries were reported. This marks the second time in recent months that the vast movie studio complex has suffered from a fire.
Back in MAY, a four-alarm fire damaged the studio complex. It took over 100 firefighters and 20 trucks to control that blaze. Several eyewitnesses said they heard explosions and could see the fire. Initially, they assumed it was part of a film production.
The studios hosted a fundraiser for PRES. BARACK OBAMA in MARCH. The financial cost of the damage to the studios is still undetermined and the cause of the fire remains under investigation, but some witnesses say it may have been a hate crime.
