It took Burbank firefighters 15 minutes to put out a house fire Saturday.

The fire was reported at 4:12 p.m. in the 100 block of South Reese Place, near the intersection of Olive and Verdugo avenues, according to a Twitter post by the Burbank Fire Department.

First arriving firefighters reported heavy flames and smoke showing from the rear of the single-story house, fire officials said.

Two additional Burbank Fire Department engines and an ambulance were added to the first-alarm response and firefighters attacked the flames while searching to make sure no one was inside, officials said.

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