In Maryland , two packages have detonated in the post offices of two state buildings, officials said tonight.

Both  government buildings are located 20 miles apart, and the packages released smoke and the smell of sulphur when they were opened. Two post workers were moderately burned.

Post rooms at state offices across Maryland were being quarantined until it could be determined if any other packages had been sent.
