Police was called to the scene at 9:35 p.m. local time and several ambulances and fire trucks have been dispatched to the scene.

No injuries have been reported and police are investigating the blast.

The building in the Stockholm suburb of Fittja, had been closed since 6 p.m. and police has not yet confirmed if anyone was inside the building during the blast, according to Aftonbladet.

An eyewitness told the daily that the Turkish cultural association building had been vandalized and hit by rocks last Sunday.
