Second BMW explodes in Virginia

ARLINGTON, VA (CNN) - Investigators are trying to figure out what caused the trunk of a BMW sedan to explode in Arlington, VA.

Police shut down surrounding streets as a bomb-detecting robot was brought in to check the car for other signs of explosives.

Fortunately, no one was hurt.

This is the second such explosion this week in the region.

Lobbyist and former congressional aide Ashley Turton was reportedly killed Monday morning when her BMW caught fire in her garage.

Both fires are under investigation.
