The home of a woman who accused failed Alabama Republican Senate candidate Roy Moore of sexual misconduct was destroyed in a fire earlier this week, Al.com reported Friday.
Al.com reports that Tina Johnson and her family lost their home and all their belongings in a Tuesday fire.
A spokesperson for the Etowah County Sherrif’s Department said that the arson task force is currently investigating the suspicious fire.

“A suspect of interest is being spoken to. But there have been no charges, to my knowledge, related to the fire at this time,” the spokesperson said.
Johnson was one of nine women who came forward last November to accuse Moore of misconduct several decades ago. She claimed that Moore groped her in 1991 when she was in his law office to transfer custody of her son to her mother and made comments about her looks, telling her “how pretty [she] was.”
“I am devastated, just devastated,” Johnson said about the fire. “We have just the clothes on our backs.”
According to the report, neighbors and utility workers called 911 shortly after 8 a.m. Tuesday to report the fire. Several neighbors noticed a young man known for public intoxication walking around the house around the time of the fire.
Johnson said that one neighbor told her the man asked if she thought Johnson’s house was “going to burn.”
