No information has been released from the Atlanta Fire Department, but the Atlanta-Journal Constitution and WSB Atlanta are reporting that the fire started on the roof of one of the studio’s three-story buildings.

Around 11:30 a.m., a couple dozen firefighters rushed to the roof, but no smoke was visible.

This is the second time a building in Perry’s southwest Atlanta complex has caught fire this year. In early May, a fire damaged a four-story sound stage.
