NASHVILLE, TN (CNN) — Investigators briefed the media Saturday, Dec. 26 about any new information discovered about the Christmas morning R-V explosion that rocked downtown Nashville.

“The first thing I want to reiterate that Chief Drake indicated is that we have no indication of additional explosive threats,” said Doug Korneski, FBI Special Agent in Charge of the Memphis Field Office. “No other explosive devices were discovered during the area during our secondary sweep yesterday.

“We’ve also increased our footprint to work as quickly, but thoroughly as possible. There are approximately 250 FBI agents, analysts and professional staff from at least eight surrounding field offices and FBI headquarters.”
