BOSTON (AP) - A Boston-area television station is returning to the air after breaking off its newscast for more than an hour because of a reported threat.

WFXT-TV posted a message to its Twitter account at 5:20 p.m. Friday saying it “has been forced to stop our regular newscast due to a threat to our building.”

About an hour and a half later the station posted: “We are back in the building. Thanks to all for your patience.”

The station is located in Dedham, Massachusetts.

One of the station’s reporters, Malini Basu described the situation as a “bomb threat” on her Twitter account.

Another reporter Elysia Rodriguez tweeted out: “We had a threat to our building and told to evacuate. Everyone OK.”
