Atlanta fire officials said they received the 911 call about the fire at 8:40 p.m. Tuesday.
Russell Evans lives across the street from TP Studios. Evans said he heard the fire before he saw it.
“I started filming the fire and the explosion. I though the tower where senior citizens live at was on fire. I found out it was Tyler Perry Studio,” said Evans.
Atlanta fire officials initially said multiple buildings were engulfed in flames when they arrived.
