Tyler Perry’s Father Is Thankful After Escaping Massive House Fire: ‘I Made It Out Alive!’ (Video)
Fire Destroys Home Of Tyler Perry’s Father
A massive fire destroyed the Greensburg, Louisiana home of Emmitt Perry, the father of media mogul Tyler Perry, on Monday night, but he’s safe and sound.
Speaking with WBRZ 2, Mr. Perry recalled the moment he realized something was terribly wrong:
I heard something popping in the attic. I went upstairs and let the [attic] stairs down. I couldn’t smell any smoke. I didn’t see anything burning.
I then went to call the fire department, and my daughter was coming in the gate. And she said, ‘I already called them.’
I made it out alive. If it wouldn’t have happened then, me and my daughter would’ve probably been in there, and we would have burned up.
