We told you earlier about the fire that set Tyler Perry studios ablaze, with some damage to the building's surface. There were no reports of injuries, and we have a confirmed statement from Tyler Perry's publicist.

Here is the statement he released:

“Atlanta firefighters responded immediately to a fire which damaged the backlot façade of one of the buildings at Tyler Perry Studios in Atlanta. We are grateful that there were no injuries, and that 99 percent of the damage is limited to the backlot facade. Mr. Perry wishes to express his heartfelt thanks to the Atlanta fire department for their professionalism in their quick response and limiting the damage.”

No direct word from Tyler Perry yet, or the exact cause of how the fire broke out. The case is being investigated by officials.
