One of the accusers of Roy Moore, Tina Johnson, is left without a home as of Wednesday. The Etowah County Arson Taskforce is now investigating the scene.

The fire started at 8am on Tuesday. Neighbors and local utility workers called 911 a short time later. The Lookout Mountain Fire Department responded and fought the fire but were unable to save the home. The Johnson family lost all their possessions in the fire.

Fortunately, nobody was hurt in the blaze.

“I am devastated, just devastated,” Johnson told reporters Friday morning. “We have just the clothes on our backs.”




Authorities have identified one suspect.

“That fire is still under investigation by the Etowah County Arson Task Force,” said Natalie Barton, who is an information officer with the local sheriff’s department. “A suspect of interest is being spoken to. But there have been no charges, to my knowledge, related to the fire at this time.”

Neighbors reportedly saw a young man with a history of public intoxication walking around the home before it was on fire. The suspect asked one neighbor if she thought the Johnson home would burn, which didn’t make sense because there were no flames yet.




“He’s been trouble in the neighborhood for a while,” said Kevin Tallant, who lives just across the street from Johnson.

“I threw on my coveralls and took off down the driveway,” he said. “I got up there,” he said, “and (the fire) was already pretty well started. When the fire department got there, I started helping them.”

Johnson and her family were living out of a hotel as of Friday.

Johnson accused Roy Moore of grabbing her without consent in his office back in the early 90’s.
