WEARS VALLEY, Tenn. (WVLT) -- A Wears Valley events center burned over the weekend and now investigators are trying to piece together what happened.

Owners of The Barn in Wears Valley say they were woken up about 2 a.m. Sunday morning by someone passing by who saw the building on fire. The owner says there was a wedding at the building and he'd locked up about midnight.

The Wears Valley Fire chief says the building was a total loss. He says so far they've not been able to figure out how the fire started.

The Barn featured 4,500 square feet meeting space for weddings and other events.
