A Pennsylvania family set fires in their matriarch’s home so they could collect more than $20 million in insurance claims, then used the cash to float their "excessively extravagant lifestyle," according to charges announced Thursday by Pennsylvania Attorney General Kathleen Kane. Claire Risoldi, four members of her Bucks County family and two alleged co-conspirators were hit with several fraud charges on Thursday after a more than year long statewide investigation. Fire spread through the Risoldis’ New Hope home, named "Clairemont" by the woman, three times between June 2009 and October 2013.
