"Boston 25 News has been forced to stop our regular newscast due to a threat to our building. We hope to be back on the air with our regular news & weather programming as soon as it’s safe to do so. Thank you for your patience," the station said on Twitter at 5:20 p.m.
The news station, which is based out of Dedham, Mass, did not elaborate any further and no one answered the phone when Metro called for comment. Dedham police told Metro that they had "no information to release yet." NBC Boston later reported that a bomb threat was confirmed.
Fox 25 also shared the same message on its Facebook account.
Within minutes after Fox 25's tweet, fans started to express their concerns.
