Package Addressed to Janet Napolitano Ignites

A package that ignited today at a Washington post office was addressed to Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano, a U.S. official said.

The official, who wasn’t authorized to speak on the matter and asked for anonymity, said the package caught fire when postal workers threw it into a bin.

A package addressed to the head of US homeland security that ignited at a Washington DC postal office yesterday was similar to two others that detonated in nearby Maryland on Thursday, US authorities said.

No one was injured, but the FBI and US Postal Service said the item was very similar to the two packages found the day before.
