A small fire Sunday morning caused about $5,000 in damage to Community First Bank, 520 Main Ave., Fargo.

An ATM customer smelled smoke in the lobby and called the bank's maintenance supervisor, who dialed 911.

The Fargo Fire Department arrived on the scene at 10:38 a.m. and discovered smoke on the third and fourth floors. The fire was in an exterior alcove above the high rise's main entrance.

No one was injured.

"It was a very small fire," Captain Chris Rasmussen said. "It was contained to the overhang, so the damage was light."

Five trucks responded to the blaze as a precautionary measure, Rasmussen said. It took about an hour to put out the flame.

The cause of the fire is still under investigation.
