Ronald Fletcher, a firefighter with Citizens Fire Company, is the designated spokesman for the case at the U.S. Post Office in Ranson.
Fletcher says workers reported a package had exploded in a storage locker about 7:45 a.m. But the package in question remains intact. It will now be X-rayed.
The workers, sheltered in a school bus, are being interviewed.
Fletcher says a robot tested the air for chemical agents, and the result came back negative.
Residents in the area were told to stay inside as a precaution.

Probably a can of PBR in his lunch bucket that got too hot and blew.
