Sheriff: No apparent link between Moore accusation, house fire

Fire trucks respond to the home of Roy Moore accuser Tina Johnson in Gadsden Ala. Wednesday

"We have just the clothes on our backs".

Though all their belongings were destroyed in the fire, Johnson, her husband and their grandson that lives with them were all out of the house when the fire was set.

Johnson's home on Lake Mary Louise Road in Gadsden, Alabama, burned down Tuesday in a fire now under investigation by the Etowah County Arson Task Force, AL.com first reported.

Johnson and her family are living in a motel while their friends and neighbors help them recover from the blaze.

The fire is now being investigated as arson, according to local authorities. A suspect of interest is being spoken to.

She told AL.com Moore groped her in his law office in 1991.

"The ongoing investigation does not lead us to believe that the fire is in any way related to Roy Moore or allegations made against him", the Etowah County Sheriff's Office said in a statement.

No charges or warrants had been filed as of late Friday afternoon.

"I threw on my coveralls and took off down the driveway", he said, adding that his wife called 911, but the dispatcher said the fire had already been reported.

Police say they have identified a suspect who is known in the area for being drunk and misbehaved.

"By this lawsuit, I seek to do what I could not do as a 14-year-old - hold Mr. Moore and those who enable him accountable", said Corfman, whose lawsuit asks Moore to publicly apologize.

Tallant said Johnson is "a super good neighbor".

On Tuesday morning, residents said they saw the man walking around the back of the home. She said she is thankful for her neighbors, who have been supportive of her family.
