Johnson was 28 years old in 1991 when she visited Moore's office with her mother to discuss a custody dispute.

The fire is now being investigated as arson, according to local authorities. The Lookout Mountain Fire Department responded to the scene, but by the time they put out the flames, the family had lost everything they owned.

Any suspects in the fire?

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

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

Johnson was among eight women who came forward to say Moore acted inappropriately with them, with four saying he pursued them while they were teenagers and he was an adult.

"He's been trouble in the neighborhood for a while", Tallant said.
