The FBI is trying to determine “if there are any terrorism links” to the bomb that exploded at an East Chicago, Ind., post office on Wednesday, but insisted “there is no ongoing public safety concern.”

The Chicago Tribune confirmed from the FBI that a pipe bomb caused the explosion shortly after 6:30 p.m. 

“At this time, investigators are still trying to ascertain if there are any terrorism links,” FBI spokeswoman Chris Bavender said in a release.

The explosion injured a female post office employee, who sustained non life-threatening injuries.

The post office was “up and running for business” Thursday morning, U.S. Postal Inspector Mary T. Johnson said.

“There is no disruption of mail delivery service,” Johnson said.

The post office was not damaged in the explosion.

FBI Takes Lead in Investigation of Post Office Bombing That Injured Postal Worker

The FBI has taken a leading role in investigating an explosion at a post office in Eastern Chicago, Indiana that injured a postal worker.

Authorities said an explosive device was detonated at the post office in northwestern Indiana at about 6 p.m. Wednesday.

Injured in the explosion was a female postal worker. Her injuries don’t appear to be life-threatening.

The Chicago Tribune reports that two employees were inside the post office during the explosion.

East Chicago Fire Chief Anthony Serna said it wasn’t immediately clear whether additional bombs were found.

Whatever the case, Serna said, bombings like this are rare.

“Bomb threats, yes,” Serna said. “An actual explosion like this is rare.”

The FBI is taking over the case because the explosion occurred in a federal building.

No suspects were in custody as of Thursday morning.
