According to online sources a fire destroyed the Virginia studio once owned by legendary producer Teddy Riley.
Fire officials say a witness saw smoke and flames, which were extinguished after almost an hour. A cause of the fire has not be determined
Riley, who was a founding member of both Guy and Blackstreet, ushered in the New Jack Swing sound in the 1980s and has produced for everyone from Michael and Janet Jackson, Mary J. Blige and Heavy D. to Big Daddy Kane, Bobby Brown and Wreckx-N-Effect.
In recent years Riley had fallen into financial problems and placed the studio up for auction in May of 2008. However, no one met the $500,000 asking price.
