The FBI is leading an investigation Thursday into an explosion at a USPS headquarters in northwestern Indiana that sent one postal worker to the hospital.

FBI Special Agent Bob Ramsey said the woman was transported to St. Catherine Hospital after the explosion about 6 p.m. on Wednesday in East Chicago. Details of her injuries weren’t released, but Fire Chief Anthony Serna said they weren’t life-threatening.

She suffered minor injuries according to one official on scene, The Times reports.

An FBI statement to the Chicago Sun-Times said it’s “yet to be determined if this is an act of domestic or international terrorism, but at this time there is no ongoing public safety concern.” The statement said the investigation was in its early stages.

Federal agents, along with local law enforcement and firefighters, were on scene at the federal building, 901 E. Chicago Ave., according to the city’s fire chief, Anthony Serna.

A fire official at the scene confirmed there was at least one explosive device.

The Porter County’s bomb squad was on scene with a bomb disposal robot.

K-9 units from the Lake County Sheriff’s Department were at the scene.

The fire department received the call of a possible explosion at 5:59 p.m., Serna said. At least one employee was inside the building at the time of the explosion.

In addition to federal agents and local fire officials, local law enforcement also assisted in the investigation. The Porter County’s bomb squad responded with a bomb disposal robot.

Agents from the FBI and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives were on the scene.

A roadway near the post office was blocked off as authorities investigated.

An FBI statement to the Chicago Sun Times said: “At this early stage in the investigation it has yet to be determined if this is an act of domestic or international terrorism, but at this time there is no ongoing public safety concern.”
