LOUSIA COUNTY, Va. (WRIC) — A Louisa County deputy and school resource officer lost his home and belongings to a devastating house fire. 

Deputy Hockman’s house in Mechanicsville caught fire on Tuesday. Photos of the fire show flames shooting out of the roof of the two-story house. 

In an effort to help Hockman rebuild what he and his family have lost, a real estate agency in Mechanicsville is taking the lead in raising donations. 

The Marshall Group with Hometown Realty said they will match all monetary donations up to $1,000 dropped off at their office, located at 9235 Shady Grove Road (second floor), by 5 p.m. on Monday, April 29. Donations can be dropped between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m., Monday through Friday. 

“Let’s fill the gap for this family who serves our community in so many ways,” Marshall Group said on Facebook. 

Any checks should be made out to Chris & Rachel Hockman. Mailed donations can be sent to the Hockman’s community’s home owners box at TRHOA P.O. Box Mechanicsville, Va. 23111. Anyone with questions should contact Katie at 804-314-5708.
