On Tuesday, an envelope containing an unnamed substance made 11 people sick, including some Marines, at Joint Base Myer-Henderson Hall in Arlington, Virginia, just a few miles from the Pentagon.

This is according to Arlington County Fire officials who updated the public through Twitter.

The 11 people fell ill after the letter was opened in the Consolidated Administration Building, which is on base.

A Marine spokesman said the base officials are coordinating with local HAZMAT teams and the FBI.

No other details were known at this time.
