While she and her family lost their physical belongings in the fire, no one was reportedly hurt. "We have just the clothes on our backs".

AL.com and The Hill reported that the home of Tina Johnson, one of the nine women who accused Roy Moore of sexual misconduct decades ago, burned on Tuesday.

As AL.com reported, the Tuesday morning fire that burned nearly all of Johnson's home in Gadsden, Alabama is under investigation by the Etowah County Arson Task Force.

The department said in a statement that it does not suspect the fire is related to allegations made against Moore, though it gave no explanation why they believe that to be the case.

Natalie Barton, public information officer with the Etowah County Sheriff's Department, told AL.com that officials are interrogating a suspect, but have not filed charges.

"More details will be released when warrants are obtained".

Johnson and her family reportedly lost everything in the fire.

Several of Johnson's neighbors noticed a young man with a reputation for public intoxication and misbehavior loitering around the property Tuesday morning.

"I threw on my coveralls and took off down the driveway", he said.

Another female neighbor told Johnson that the young man in question approached her as she was leaving her home that morning and asked if she thought the house was going to burn down. Johnson said she was 28 at the time. Leigh Corfman, who claimed Moore molested her when she was 14, alleged Moore and his campaign defamed her and made false statements as they denied her accusations.

Moore's Democratic rival, Doug Jones, was sworn in Wednesday as the next senator of Alabama.
