MIAMI (AP) — Authorities say a number of arrests are being made in a major home insurance fraud ring operating in South Florida.

Miami-Dade State Attorney Katherine Fernandez Rundle and state Chief Financial Officer Jeff Atwater were scheduled to discuss details of the case Tuesday afternoon. Authorities say the fraud ring caused millions of dollars in losses to insurance companies.

Much of the fraud involved arson-set fires at properties in the Miami area and elsewhere.

Law enforcement authorities in South Florida have recently been battling several kinds of insurance fraud, including staged auto accidents and faked personal injury cases.
