LOUDON (WATE) - Firefighters were unable to save a family worship center in Loudon County after flames broke out early Saturday morning.

According to dispatch, the Word of Faith Family Worship Center on Mulberry Street, was consumed in flames around 12:30 a.m.

The Loudon Fire Department were the first to arrive on scene and called for rescue to join them, after noticing the flames had reached the attic.

Witnesses on scene said at least three fire trucks were on scene and the roof collapsed.

Firefighters originally thought a stove started the blaze, but are still investigating.

According to officials, Word of Faith Worship Center was over 100 years old, and used to be a funeral home.

Two people were renting a residence at the top of the church, but were out of the building when crews arrived.

No one was injured, and we will bring more details as they become available.
