Bound for Rebound

There's this girl. I have been a casual aquaintance of this girl for about two years. A week and a half ago we bumped into each other at the grocery store, and something was in the air. Two days later, we bump into each other again at a restaurant where we somehow exchange phone numbers. Since then, a week and a half later, we have been texting each other like crazy, talking on the phone, emailing, and have had a few walks and talks together. There is some intense chemistry going on. This is a great thing!
Now if it was only that simple. This girl just broke up with her boyfriend of two years yesterday. They actually lived together but she moved out about 4 months ago when they broke up for the first time.... She was the one that has initiated the breaking up, and from what I have gathered from her friends, she was going to break up with him regardless of any chemistry between us. It sounds like they have pretty much been on the outs for quite some time.
So.....with this 'situation' and this intense chemistry, how do I approach this one. Head for the hills? Give her some time? Wear a shirt that says 'Rebound Boy'? I am very interested in getting to know her but I also am very aware of what she may or may not be going through right now. Am I a complete idiot?
