Authorities ID Victim in Shoreview House Fire
SHOREVIEW (AP) — Authorities in Ramsey County have identified a woman who died in a fire at her Shoreview home.
60-year-old Nancy Swanson lived alone in the house that burned on Monday morning. Firefighters reported difficulty getting inside the house due to piles of debris and clutter.
A spokesman for the Ramsey County Sheriff’s office says conditions inside the home suggest hoarding. Firefighters believe the fire was accidental and started in the basement.
