Tyler Perry is on fire, but not in a good way. 

The media mogul's Atlanta studio erupted in flames on Monday morning, making it the second time this year that a fire has broken out at the compound. Firefighters, responding to calls that the building's roof was ablaze, were able to contain the fire before any serious damage or injuries occured.

On May 1, a large fire broke out on a sound stage at the studio, destroying a set. No injuries were reported in that incident, either.

While representatives for Tyler Perry Studios investigate the cause of the frequent fires, they are lucky to be under the protection of Atlanta's bravest! is your #1 source for Black celebrity news, photos, exclusive videos and all the latest in the world of hip hop and R&B music.
