Police collecting donations for patrolman’s fire losses

Ebeling was on duty when family’s house burned

Posted

Owensville police are accepting cash donations for one of their fellow patrolmen whose family lost their Rolla residence and possessions Thursday in an early-morning fire.

Policeman Troy Ebeling was on duty overnight in Owensville when he received a call from his wife, Keeley, saying their house was on fire, according to Brenn Finley, the department’s school resource officer and patrolman. She and their infant son escaped without injury but their belongings were a loss.

Finley has set up a venmo account in Keeley’s name @keeley-Ebeling. Donations can also be dropped off at the Owensville Police station at 109 North Second Street.

St. James police have also reached out to assist a fellow officer.

According to the Rolla Daily News, St. James police are currently collecting donations from residents who would like to help. The department will have a box in their lobby at 200 North Bourbeuse Street for residents to drop off donations through Thursday.

Ebeling has been with the police department for more than three years. He had participated in a department firearms safety and range qualification exercise this past Wednesday afternoon into the early evening while on scheduled duty. His shift continued afterward until he was called home because of the fire.
