Atlanta, GA (AP) - Atlanta fire officials say they are fighting a 4-alarm blaze at Tyler Perry Studios that has damaged a building on the complex.

Atlanta Fire Department spokesman Capt. Jolyon Bundrige says the fire happened before 9 p.m. Tuesday and there have been no immediate reports of injuries.

He says the cause of the fire was not immediately known.

The studio's website says it includes a 200,000-square-foot studio, five sound stages and a 400-seat theater in southwest Atlanta.

In March, pop star Cee Lo performed for donors at a fundraiser for President Barack Obama at the studios.

    For all of the Tyler Perry haters out there. I have enjoyed all of his movies and plays. The ones that Do you act like some of his characters in his movies? By your ignorance I say you do. Watch them they may help you shape up your life. Think before you comment on these post let the love of Christ shine through. Thats whats wrong with the world today Negativity and downing people instead of lifting them up especially when they are in need of prayer.

      Spike Lee hates Tyler Perry's movies and is a very vocal critic of Perry's oeuvre, but I guess that's okay.

      If his movies were so terrible, they wouldn't have done great at the box office. He must be doing something right! I love his movies. Always funny and always a lesson to learn!
