ANNAPOLIS, Md. — Two packages sent to state government buildings 20 miles apart released smoke and odors when they were opened Thursday, but no one was injured seriously, officials said.
State officials initially said the packages exploded, but later said there were no blasts.
Maryland state police spokesman Greg Shipley said mailrooms at state offices across Maryland were being quarantined until it could be determined if any other packages had been sent.
