(CNN) -- At least three grenades exploded near the U.S. consulate in Monterrey, Mexico late Friday, a consulate employee told CNN Saturday.

The closest blast was within 40 meters (44 yards) of the consulate, spokesperson Brian Quigley said.

He did not offer many more details, but Justin Davis, a consulate duty officer, said the series of explosions occurred over the course of an hour, starting at 8 p.m. local time.

Davis said there were no reports of deaths or injuries of Americans or any damage to U.S. property, though a few cars in the area were damaged.

Shrapnel injured the watchman of a nearby courthouse, according to the local El Norte newspaper. Another grenade exploded in front of a prison.

In a perfect world we would just fire back with something bigger.

Just another weapon purchased in LA at a gun show and transported to lower California.
