No one knows exactly why TP’s studio went up in flames the first time and Atlanta area investigators ruled the cause of the fire as “undetermined”, but firetrucks were back at the scene yet again, fighting another blaze earlier this morning (August 27, 2012).
Photos + details below…
According to the AJC, Fire officials have not released information on Monday’s blaze, but police dispatchers reported that the roof of a building at the complex was on fire.
The fire was apparently in a three-story, 100 by 200-foot building. Video from the Channel 2 Action News helicopter showed about two dozen firefighters on the roof of the building, but no smoke showing at 11:30 a.m.
In early May, the exterior of a building in the 30-acre complex was heavily damaged be fire. The interior of that building sustained some water damage.
It was not immediately known whether the building on fire Monday was the same building that caught fire on May 1.
Perry’s studio is located on Continental Colony Parkway in southwest Atlanta and back in May, the streets were buzzing about all kinds of far-fetched scenario for the cause of the blaze.
[Sidebar: Producer Will Packer had an alibi, but no one ever confirmed Spike Lee’s whereabouts… But I digress. ]
The 200,000-square-foot studio, which opened in 2008, is home to sets, sound stages and a 400-seat theater. In March, Perry hosted a fundraiser for President Barack Obama at the studio.
Hopefully every thing is ok with TP’s investment. Feels like groundhog day all over again…
