ARSON PROBE-PKG


Etowah County Sheriff's officials are investigating a case of arson at a home on Lake Mary Louise Road in Gadsden. It's the home of one of the women who accused Roy Moore of sexual misconduct. The sheriff's office tells ABC 33/40 they don't believe the fire is related to Roy Moore or the accusations against him. But, Tina Johnson, the homeowner, says while it may not be related, it's making finding a new place to live difficult.

There's not much left of the home Tina Johnson shared with her husband and 15-year-old grandson. The three are now living in a motel.

"We have nothing. Just the clothes on our back."

Johnson says her grandson's school has kindly donated clothing to him since the fire. She also says the police department has provided necessities to her family as well. Someone set fire to the home Wednesday morning. Investigators have a person of interest but have not yet issued an arrest warrant.

Johnson is among multiple women who accused former judge and Senate candidate Roy Moore of sexual misconduct.

"It was hard on me and my family," Johnson says. "It was embarrassing. Just when things started to die down, and we were getting back to things being good again. And now this?it's just devastating."

Johnson says she's anxious to get her family out of the hotel and back to normalcy, especially her grandson whom she says has already been through enough. But, says she can't seem to find a home to rent.

"As soon as they hear my name, they say it's not available. Or something with the application."

She fears she could have to leave Gadsden altogether, but she is desperate to continue providing stability for her grandson.

"Please, someone if you have a home that we can rent. We can pay the rent -- $1500 - $2000," Johnson says. "We just want a place to stay."

Johnson is also warning people there are fake GoFundMe accounts in her name. The one she is using is under Ashley Turner, Tina's daughter. Return to index of stories...

WEATHER-WXWALL


THIS WEATHERCAST HAS BEEN PREPARED BY THE ABC7 WEATHER STAFF.

IT IS NOT A VERBATIM OF WHAT IS BEING SAID, BUT IS THE FORECAST FOR OUR AREA.

Forecast: Warming trend begins Saturday

If you've had enough of the chilly weather, a return to more normal conditions is on the horizon for Southwest Florida. We are going to start the day again in the mid to upper 30s inland with upper 30s to low 40s along the coast. Light to moderate winds from the north will add a little bite to the temperatures again this morning meaning it will feel like the 30s up until between 9 and 10 a.m.

A few high cirrus clouds will streak across the state today, but that shouldn't impact us too much with plentiful sunshine otherwise. Temperatures will get a little warmer today, reaching the mid 60s for most. It's still about 10 degrees below average, but the signs of warming are there. The chill further weakens tonight with only a few scattered upper 30s inland and mid 40s along the coast. Highs on Sunday will be near 70 degrees under sunny skies.

Next week will be another change as temperatures shoot to a few degrees above average starting on Monday. Highs will be in the upper 70s as a developing system brings more humid air and a chance for showers in our region Tuesday and Wednesday. Temperatures will remain warm with numerous clouds as the weather pattern across Florida remains unsettled into next weekend. Return to index of stories...
