An early morning fire sent one person to the hospital and caused thousands of dollars in damage. Fire officials say it was all because of cleaning supplies that weren't correctly discarded.

The fire started in the basement of this home on White Avenue in downtown Grand Junction at 1:30 Monday morning.

Fire officials are now saying that the fire started because of chemicals left on cleaning rags that spontaneously combusted.

One person was taken to the hospital with minor injuries from the blaze.

The fire department estimates about $15,000 worth of damage to the house and items inside.

The fire department would like to remind everyone of the importance of properly discarding all materials that re used in cleaning, staining or finishing products.
