Robert and Tammy Belanger are co-owners of Hawthorn Estates, in St. Clements, Man. The barn was built in the 1940s, and in 2006 the couple restored it into a wedding venue – with two floors, a staging kitchen, chandeliers and a lounging bridal room. At 6 a.m. Friday, Robert said he woke up to the sound of a horn honking outside his place. He was then notified the barn was completely engulfed in flames.
