The Atlanta Journal Constitution reports that firefighters battled a fire that broke out at the famed Tyler Perry Studios on Continental Colony Parkway in southeast Atlanta early Monday morning.

Monday's fire was the second suspicious fire at the studios in recent months. The fire apparently started in a 3-story building about 100x200 feet, or the size of a 3-story portable toilet. In May, another building on the 30-acre property was damaged by a fire that started suspiciously.

There has been no official comment by Perry, 42, who opened the movie studio in 2008 and recently hosted a star-studded re-election event for President Oabama.
