No arrests have been made, and there appears to be no connection to the allegations against Moore, the Etowah County Sheriff’s Office said in a news release.
“The ongoing investigation does not lead us to believe that the fire is in any way related to Roy Moore or allegations made against him,” the release said. Johnson told CNN she lost everything in the Wednesday fire at a Gadsden home where she lived for 10 years.
After the mother left the room, “He just grabbed me from behind, on my buttocks,” Johnson said. “It’s not just a squeeze.”
Moore has denied all the accusations.
The Republican ran for the US Senate seat vacated by Jeff Sessions, now the US attorney general. Moore lost a runoff last month to Doug Jones, a Democrat.
