Indesign Data Merge - Auto Size Text Boxes so the paragraphs are fluid

I am using Indesign data merge to take information from a CSV file to populate a PDF. One item in the CSV file is a summary paragraph, another is a basic info paragraph. They all vary in size.

My question: is it possible to have a text box (summary paragraph) auto size, and be followed by another text box (the basic info paragraph) so that there is no unnecessary white space?
