Many Talavera residents were awoken about 2:30 AM this morning by a loud explosion and subsequent fire. According to news reports this morning, the explosion occured at 4852 Deadwood Camp Ct., in the Miners Ridge neighborhood. According to the Dona Ana Conty assesor’s records, the house is listed under the name of Paul and Kimberlee Hering. The news reports indicate that the house was unoccupied and for sale. News reports also indicate that several adjacent homes suffered damage as a result of the explosion. At this time, no cause has been determined.

I found the best local news coverage so far is at the KFOX TV web site as the have photos available. Other media outlets with stories are: The El Paso Times, KTSM Channel 9, and KVIA TV.
