JEFFERSON COUNTY, Tenn. -

Heavy rain caused a roof to collapse at a high school in east Tennessee. 

We're told part of the roof fell through the vocational building at Jefferson County High School where automotive classes are taught. 

An assistant principal at the school says one classroom is destroyed. 

He says rain is to blame for the roof collapse.
