There were no serious injuries, though two people were treated by ambulance personnel at the scene, according to broadcaster AT5. The explosion caused property damage to buildings and vehicles, police said. A reporter for the broadcaster said the explosion occurred beneath or next to a parked car in front of the Park View Hotel.
