Authorities responded Tuesday night to reports of an incendiary device at an Austin, Tx., Goodwill.

Local law enforcement got a call around 7 p.m. about a package that exploded at a Goodwill store, KXAN reported.

The Austin Police Department later said there was no explosion, but that the store did receive a package containing an incendiary device. They also do not believe that is connected to the other bombings occurring in the area.
