On Monday, prior to the latest explosion, Austin police said they believed the explosion of four other bombs this month that have killed two people and hurt several others is the work of a "serial bomber."

Now, an explosion has taken place at a mail facility near San Antonio, Texas, just two days after a bomb went off in Austin, Texas - the fourth such bombing in the city this month, ABC News reported.

According to Schertz police, the explosion took place at a FedEx distribution facility in Schertz, Texas, just after midnight on Tuesday. Schertz is about 65 miles southwest of Austin.

According to police, who spoke with San Antonio ABC affiliate KSAT, a medium-sized box exploded at the facility.

One worker possibly suffered minor injuries in the explosion. They were not taken to the hospital, the official said. There were 75 people in the building at the time of the explosion.

Police said they "hope" this is an isolated incident and do not yet know if it is connected to the Austin bombings.
