At least one employee suffered minor injuries Wednesday when "one, possibly two explosive devices detonated" in a post office in East Chicago, Indiana, according to an ATF spokesperson.

The fire department received the call of a possible explosion at the East Chicago Main Passport Post Office around 6 p.m. at 901 E. Chicago Ave., acting East Chicago Fire Department Chief Francisco Mendez said.

He said he could not confirm if there were any other explosions but bomb technicians were preparing to sweep the post office for more explosive devices.

There were two people, including the injured employee, inside the building when the explosion occurred, Mendez said. A third person was outside of the building "making deliveries." He added that he believed the post office was closed for the day during the explosion.

Part of Chicago Avenue was closed to traffic as emergency response vehicles with red and blue flashing lights formed a perimeter around the facility.
