An explosion went off near a mosque and a house occupied by an Islamic association, authorities said in Cincinnati, Ohio.

No injuries were reported.

Police closed nearby streets and investigators combed the area late Tuesday with bomb-sniffing dogs.

"This is very disturbing," said Karen Daboub, director of the Council on American-Islamic Relations in Cincinnati. "And not only for this mosque and our community, but for the Islamic community in and around Greater Cincinnati."

The mosque closed about 8 p.m. Tuesday. Police received a call about 10:45 p.m. from someone who heard an explosion.

The explosion occurred near a two-story brick house owned by the Islamic Association of Cincinnati and an attached worship center that opened about two years ago.
