A bomb disposal team carried out a controlled explosion in Paisley early on Saturday morning.
It came after Police Scotland were called to reports of an explosion in Well Street just before 21:00 on Friday.
Police said there was nothing to suggest the incident was terror-related. There are reports it was a “firework device”.
A 35-year-old man has been arrested and detained.
No one was injured in the incident and police have thanked the local community for their help.
