ATLANTA -- Atlanta Fire investigators said Tuesday that "careless smoking" was the cause of a fire at the Tyler Perry Studios in Southwest Atlanta on Monday.

The fire broke out late Monday morning at the complex, located at 3133 Continental Colony Parkway near Greenbriar Mall.

11Alive Skycam images showed that construction materials on top of a building in the complex went up in flames. No injuries were reported.

This marks the second time in recent months that a fire was reported at the movie studios -- in early May, a blaze on the facade of a soundstage caused little damage to a building there.
