FOUNTAIN INN, SC (FOX Carolina) -

A barn owned and operated as a wedding venue burned to the ground Tuesday morning in Fountain Inn.

Firefighters were called to Sanchez Way where a barn caught fire and was found fully engulfed in flames by six responding departments at about 2:30 a.m.

According to FOX Carolina's crew at the scene, the barn is a popular wedding venue named the Luv Shack on the River.

Firefighters said no one was injured in the blaze, and they do not yet know how it started.

They said there was a wedding planned there for Saturday. Helena Sisk's daughter Carmen was supposed to wed there, but she said they had to find a different venue in Laurens.

"She was crying hysterically, and she said 'The barn burnt down,'" Sisk said.

Sisk said a country club in Laurens County came through with four days to go until her daughter's wedding day.

The owner of the barn was not available for comment.
