(NECN) -Three campuses of Massachusetts Bay Community College have been evacuated. The campuses are located in Framingham, Wellesley and Ashland.

Jennifer Mieth, with Massachusetts Fire Marshal's Office, confirms a state police bomb squad is responding to the Framingham campus of MassBay because there was a bomb threat found in a bathroom.

Earlier Tuesday, the state police bomb squad responded to Elm Brook Reservation on the Dover/Wellesley line for a suspicious device. because the MassBay Wellesley campus is near Elm Brook Reservation, school administration officials decided to evacuate all three campuses (Ashland, Framingham and Wellesley) even though the bomb threat to the school was only on the Framingham campus.
 
MassBay is closed for the rest of Tuesday, November 5. All classes and activities are canceled.
