Explosion reported at FedEx facility in San Antonio

Explosion reported at FedEx facility in San Antonio

The FBI and several law enforcement agencies are investigating a package that exploded around midnight at a FedEx ground building in Schertz, which is located between Austin and San Antonio.

CBS Austin, quoting law enforcement officials, says the package detonated at around 12:25 a.m. local time at a facility in Schertz, Texas, northeast of San Antonio. About 75 employees were working at the facility when it happened.

It seems that Tuesday's explosion was not as risky as it might have been had it reached its target.
