Around 1:30 Thursday morning there was a powerful explosion and fire in Rinkeby, a suburb in northern Stockholm.

No one was injured but there was a lot of property damaged in the explosion.

The explosion hit the commercial center of Rinkeby and among the buildings damaged are a pizzeria and a boxing club.

Police are not certain whether it was an explosion that lead to a fire or if the fire started first and caused the explosion. A molotov cocktail was initial suspected as the cause. Now police are uncertain if that was the cause but are working under the assumption that it was some form of arson.

No one is in custody but police are continuing their investigation into the cause of the explosion and fire.
