Fire investigators have determined that “careless smoking” caused Monday’s fire at Tyler Perry Studios in southwest Atlanta.

Atlanta Fire Department spokeswoman Marian McDaniel said the latest blaze was confined to a roof of a building at the complex. The building was undergoing repairs to the roof when the fire broke out, McDaniel said.

The building did not sustain any structural damage and no injuries were reported, McDaniel said. It was brought under control in less than an hour. No criminal charges are pending at this time.
