Local and federal authorities investigate two recent Aurora explosions

Local and federal investigators are looking into two separate explosions in Aurora.

Both explosions caused property damage but no one was injured, according to a news release.

Aurora fire and police investigators are working with the U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives and authorities are asking for the public’s help in determining who is behind the incidents.

“Investigators are interested in any information about these explosions, including security camera footage, doorbell camera videos or photos that local area residents may have around the time of the incidents could be helpful,” the release said.

The first explosion happened at about 5:30 a.m. on Christmas Day, Dec. 25, in the 18000 block of East Mansfield Avenue. The explosion damaged two homes.

The second incident happened at about 4:45 a.m. Thursday in the 4600 block of South Pagosa Circle. An officer responding to a report of shots fired in the area “found a detonated explosive device.” One home was damaged.

The incidents happened within about a mile of each other.
