    Officials say an investigation of a fire that killed a man last month in Cape Cod has determined the blaze was intentionally set by the victim. 

    Massachusetts Department of Fire Services spokeswoman Jennifer Mieth said Tuesday investigators believe the Dec. 23 house fire was started by 31-year-old Zackery Dery. 

    Firefighters found Dery's body inside a bedroom when they responded to the fire in the town of Brewster around 5:30 p.m. No one else was inside the home. 

    Mieth says the investigation into the cause and manner of Dery's death and the surrounding circumstances is ongoing.
