Fire crews say piles of debris inside a burning home stopped them from rescuing a Shoreview woman.

Firefighters tried saving 60-year-old Nancy Swanson inside her home on Richmond Court Monday morning. Crews say they had to work their way in to find her.

Officials say Swanson lived in the home alone. They believe the fire was accidental and started in the basement.
