INDIANAPOLIS, Ind.—A near north side resident believes cleaning chemicals were to blame for a small fire that sparked in the upstairs of his house Tuesday.
Fire crews were dispatched to the home in the 2800 block of N. Capitol Ave. around 10:11 a.m. Firefighters were able to contain the fire in approximately 10 minutes.
Resident 43-year-old Shawn Smith told officials he was cleaning and believed the cleaning chemicals he was using reacted with each other, prompting a small fire. Smith was transported to Methodist Hospital in stable condition for smoke inhalation.
Damage to the home is estimated at $1,000.
