UPDATE 11/4/11 @ 1:45 p.m. RANSON, W.Va. (AP) - Authorities say they have found no sign of a reported explosion inside a small-town post office in West Virginia and no sign that white powder sprayed out.

The scare prompted officials to quarantine 15 postal workers Friday, though none showed signs of illness. Click here to find out more!

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.
