The fire Monday night that tore through a duplex on Mount Pleasant Street may have been started by incense that was part of a religious shrine.
Derby Fire Marshal Phil Hawks said a man who lived in the apartment where the fire started had been praying at the shrine shortly before the fire started.
The man then went upstairs, smelled smoke and returned to the lower floor. The information comes from an interview Hawks said he conducted with the man and his family.
