The Harrisonville Police Department is investigating after a police officer’s home was damaged by a house fire. 

In a Facebook post, the department said they are considering the fire as suspicious and it’s being investigated as an arson. 

The home belongs to Sergeant Geromy Pearce of the Harrisonville Police Department. 

His girlfriend, who is also a police officer, heard a noise outside and went to investigate. 

Neighbors ran out to warn her the home was on fire. Some even grabbed garden hoses to help put it out. 

Peace told KCTV5 he doesn't know if his home was targeted, but it's possible he added. 

"I think it's possible," he said. "We wear our uniforms back and forth. I think right now has scary as times are that's  a possibility."

The fire comes during a weekend wear four police officers were shot, including one in Gladstone, MO.

Neighbors have rallied together to help out the family. Some of the neighborhood kids even went door to door to collect money for the family. 

The family of the officer was not harmed.
