An officer with the Wiggins (MS) Police Department and his fiancé had most of their possessions burned in a fire that ripped through their home on Sunday.
The department said on its Facebook page, “One of Wiggins Police Department’s own, Officer Sherrill, lost everything he owned this morning when his home burned. He is a full-time officer within our department as well as a certified firefighter. We are seeking donations from the community during this time to help him get back on his feet.”
The department has set up fundraisers pages on Facebook and GoFundMe. The agency said it will also be accepting donations at the police department.
“Thank you for your support of Officer Sherrill and our department,” the Facebook post said.
Officer Chris Sherrill and his fiancée Courtney Carlisle are set to be married in three weeks.
