FORT COLLINS, Colo. (AP) -- The Larimer County Coroner Office has identified a 64-year-old woman who died in a fire after firefighters had trouble getting into her house.

The coroner says Kathleen Burrell died of smoke inhalation and burns over 40 percent of her body in the fire Monday night.

Firefighters said it was difficult for them to find the victim in the two-story house because of the amount of material stored in each room.
