BELTON, SC (FOX Carolina) -

An Anderson County deputy's home was badly damaged in a fire Sunday.

The fire broke out in Deputy Tony Kerr's home on River Street near Belton just before noon.

The Belton Fire Department and other area departments and battled the fire, but Kerr said the inside of the home was completely destroyed.

Kerr, who has worked for the Anderson County Sheriff's Office for more than 12 years, said he and his wife and adult son had lived in the house on River Street for four years. Kerr said he currently works as a detention officer at the Anderson County Detention Center.

No one was home at the time the fire broke out, Kerr said.

Firefighters believe the fire started behind the refrigerator and believe it may have been electrical, Kerr said.

While Kerr said he was emotionally overwhelmed, he said he was thankful for all the support he had been getting from the sheriff's office, friends, and family.
