There were no immediate reports of injuries following the explosion on Wednesday afternoon
An explosion has been reported outside a reception centre for refugees in Germany.
A suitcase filled with aerosols was thought to be the source of the apparent blast outside the Bundesamtes für Migration in Zirndorf, Bavaria, on Wednesday afternoon, Bayerischer Rundfunk reported.
But Bavaria Police denied an explosive device was used in a message on Twitter, and said no one was injured.
"Forces on the ground. No acute danger in the surrounding area," the post read.
Photos of the scene showed police officers surrounding the remains of a suitcase on a footpath around 100 metres from the reception centre.
