Insurance :  Fire Loss –  Insurable Interest –  Prima Facie Tort

Where appellant challenged a summary judgment against him on a petition to collect insurance benefits after a fire loss, the judgment is affirmed because the appellant failed to show a policy was in effect or that his sister was his agent to acquire and hold insurance for him, and the counterclaim awards for actual and punitive damages are reversed because the insurer failed to prove injury.

Judgment is affirmed in part; reversed in part; remanded.
