Investigators are trying to determine what caused a fire Monday morning at Tyler Perry Studios, the second one in recent months at the complex.
More than a dozen firefighters tackled the fire and had it under control in under an hour, the department’s spokeswoman Capt. Marian McDaniel said.
“They were doing roof work and it caught on fire, as to why or how that’s under investigation,” Capt. McDaniel said.
No one was injured in the fire, which was contained to the roof, she said.
In early May, the exterior of a building in the 30-acre complex was also heavily damaged by fire. The interior of that building also sustained some water damage.
The 200,000-square-foot studio, which opened in 2008, is home to sets, sound stages and a 400-seat theater, according to media reports. In March, Mr. Perry hosted a fundraiser for President Barack Obama at the studios.
