Fire Marshal James Tortora said Monday the cause of the fire that destroyed Howe Convenient, other businesses and about 20 apartments is "undetermined" because of the severity of the damage.
His office finished the investigation Friday, Tortora said.
"We believe the fire started in the basement" near Howe Convenient, Tortora said.
Owners Ralph and Elaine Matto have said they are awaiting their insurance company's evaluation before making a decision regarding the building.
