Local media outlets ran videos showing thick smoke and flames rising from the building.

Hezbollah officials immediately sealed off the area and rescue services extinguished the fire sparked by the blast.

Preliminary reports suggest there were no injuries caused by the explosion. The cause of the blast also remains unclear.
