Fire at Moore accuser's Alabama home not linked to allegations: sheriff

Fire at Moore accuser's Alabama home not linked to allegations: sheriff

"I am devastated, just devastated", she told AL.com on Friday.

Johnson and some of her neighbors told AL.com that a young man with a history of public intoxication was seen walking around the house before and during the blaze.

Five other women have accused Moore of sexual misconduct or of dating them when he was in his 30s and they were teenagers.

"My neighbors are just heartbroken, too", she said.

Johnson said she and her mother visited Moore's Gadsden law office in 1991 to discuss a custody dispute over the care of Johnson's young son.




On Tuesday morning, Johnson's home in Gadsen, Alabama went up in flames and the blaze is now being investigated for arson.

Johnson and her family reportedly lost everything in the fire. "But there have been no charges, to my knowledge, related to the fire at this time", said Natalie Barton, the public information officer with the department. Johnson accused Moore of commenting on her looks before getting close to her and grabbing her buttocks.

Investigators are speaking to a person of interest, but warrants have not been obtained in this case.

Johnson says she and her family were not injured but got out only with the clothes on their backs, and are having a hard time finding a rental home.

"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. The Republican Moore, a former chief justice of Alabama's Supreme Court, lost narrowly to Democratic candidate Doug Jones. He has denied all the allegations.
