STRATFORD, Conn. (AP) _ A mother and daughter have been charged with setting a fire that heavily damaged the mom’s home in Stratford.

Police tell the Connecticut Post  they became suspicious after finding valuables and all the food from the mother’s refrigerator in her daughter’s car.

Sixty-year-old Luz Davila-Nieves and 41-year-old Madeline Griffin were charged Thursday with arson, conspiracy, larceny and insurance fraud. Each is being held in lieu of $250,000 bond.
Police determined the May, 2011 fire on Light Street was fueled by gasoline poured throughout the house.

The women told authorities they were at the daughter’s home in Brookfield when the fire broke out.

But police say they found frozen food, two television sets, a digital camera, jewelry and four cellphones from the house inside the daughter’s car.
