While she and her family lost their physical belongings in the fire, no one was reportedly hurt.

"My neighbors are just heartbroken, too", she said. "We have just the clothes on our backs".

Authorities in Alabama said Friday they had launched an arson investigation after the home of a woman who accused Roy Moore of groping her almost two decades ago burned to the ground Wednesday.

January 2. According to reports, Johnson and her family lost their home and all of their belongings and have been living in a hotel.

The Etowah County Sheriff's Office issued a news release saying the Wednesday fire was being investigated as arson. "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. She told AL.com Moore groped her in his law office in 1991.

Neighbors told AL.com that several of them noticed a young man walking around the house at about the time of the fire.

Her mother had accompanied her to the meeting but it did not stop Moore from "grabbing" her buttocks as she left, she claimed.

"I was so humiliated and sickened", she said.

Johnson and her family are living in a motel while their friends and neighbors help them recover from the blaze.

The allegations by Johnson and the other women helped sink the far-right Republican's campaign for a seat that was won by Doug Jones, the first Alabama Democrat elected to the Senate in a quarter century.

Reuters was unable to independently verify the allegations, and Moore has denied any wrongdoing.
