VAN NUYS (CNS) - Firefighters Saturday knocked down a greater-alarm fire at a single-story bank in Van Nuys, authorities said.

Firefighters dispatched at 6:25 a.m. to Chase Bank, 6400 N. Sepulveda Blvd., had the blaze out within 41 minutes of their arrival, the Los Angeles Fire Department reported.

``The business, Chase Bank, was not yet open for the day and no one was present," said Margaret Stewart of the Los Angeles Fire Department. ``LAPD are responding to the scene to secure the building."

The blaze began as an outside fire that extended into at least one room of the single-story structure. The fire extended into the attic and additional resources were requested, raising the incident to greater alarm status.

No injuries were reported and a cause of the fire was under investigation.
