State Fire Marshal Stephen Coan and Marlborough Fire Chief James Fortin said in a statement Wednesday it is thought the fire started in a storage area of the attic, but damage was so extensive that the investigative team was not able to conclusively determine a cause.

They said the building did not have a sprinkler system, which was not required at the time of construction.

The fact the fire happened during the day and the fire alarm system worked probably helped prevent injuries.
