CEREDO, Wv. -

Kenova Police Officer, Trent Damron, was not at his home on Hubbard Branch Road in Ceredo when rocks began rolling down the hill behind his home.

His pregnant wife was home, though.

"My wife had called me and told me the rock had came down," says Officer Damron, who then immediately came home to find that much more than just one rock had fallen. "When I got home, the whole hillside had came down."

Damron's homeowner's insurance will not cover much of the damage to his garage, and his car insurance will not replace his two crushed vehicles, because he recently changed to a slimmer policy to free up Christmas shopping money.

"Yeah, I had just dropped it down for a little bit, and lost it all," says Damron. "Two cars. Garage. Everything inside of it."

Kenova Police Chief, Ray Mossman helped to set up a trust account in Damron's name, mainly to help pay for the fuel needed to power the equipment he is using to move the rocks out of his and his neighbors' yards.

"I don't want to rebuild or anything," says a composed Officer Damron. "I just want to clean things up."
