CAMBRIDGE, MASS. (WHDH) - Bomb threats forced the evacuation of a Massachusetts Institute of Technology building Thursday, school safety officials said.

The threats were received via phone call and Cambridge police say they believe them to be false.

Several other Ivy League universities have been hit with similar threats recently. All have been found to be fake.

An investigation into the incident is underway.
