DOVER, Del. --- Two correctional officers are 'OK' after encountering what state officials have called an "unknown substance" inside the James T. Vaughn Correctional Center near Smyrna.

Paul Shavack, a spokesman for the Delaware Department of Correction, said the correctional officers had been released from the hospital after a precautionary visit, as was an inmate also hospitalized Friday evening.

However, Shavack did not identify the substance the correctional officers had found or how they found it.
