Explosion reported at FedEx Ground facility in San Antonio

By Madison Park, CNN

CNN—An explosion occurred overnight inside a FedEx facility in Schertz, Texas, FBI San Antonio spokeswoman Michelle Lee said.

Based on preliminary information gathered at the scene, there could be a connection with the four recent Austin explosions, Lee said.

"We suspect it is related to our investigation," Lee said.

No injuries have been reported in the explosion at FedEx, ATF spokeswoman Nicole Strong said. She said the ATF could not confirm that this explosion is associated with the Austin blasts.

The ATF's Houston field division is at the FedEx facility in Schertz, the agency said on Twitter.

Police in Austin, aided by federal and state forces, are combing for clues to find the serial bomber behind four explosions.

But so far, there's no word on any suspect or motive.

With the community alarmed and no clear answers, law enforcement is getting more manpower and resources to investigate the blasts that have killed two people and injured four others.

"There is an army of law enforcement folks on the scene right now. They're getting all the resources they need," Austin Mayor Steve Adler told CNN Monday. "This is a group that's very determined and focused."

For the fourth time this month, a device exploded in Austin Sunday night.But this time, instead of a package bomb left on residents' doorsteps as had been the case in the first three explosions, a device was triggered by a tripwire, police said.

The two men who were injured in the latest blast are expected to recover.
