Investigators are checking out a red Chevrolet Blazer SUV. They've popped open the hood, and are looking at the front end.
Police recently briefed the media, but aren't saying a lot about their investigation into this morning's explosion. They tell us they've swept the scene.
Fortunately no one was hurt by the blast.
A neighbor we spoke to says the early morning explosion woke him up.
We're still on the scene, and will bring you more updates as we get them.

The Blacksburg Police Department is investigating an early morning explosion.
Officers responded to the 400 block of Harrell Street at around 2:50 a.m. Wednesday morning after a citizen called 911 and reported hearing either a gunshot or explosion in the area.
After an initial investigation, officials say they were able to determine that an improvised explosive device blew up near several parked vehicles, badly damaging one of them.
Virginia State Police, the FBI, and ATF agents are assisting Blacksburg Police with the investigation.
