(CNN) -- A 4.5-magnitude earthquake rattled parts of northern California early Thursday. There were no reports of damage or injuries.

The earthquake was centered on the small town of King's Beach at 1:55 a.m. (4:55 EDT), according to Stephanie Hanna, communications chief for the western region of the United States Geological Survey.

"I thought a car hit our building," said Suzanne Melton-Johnson a dispatcher for the Placer County Sheriff's Department where King's Beach is located.

The epicenter was about 15 miles southwest of Reno, Nev.
