A spokesman for the Prince George's County fire department says authorities responded to a "hazardous device" early Friday morning in the 5000 block of Edgewood Road, about a mile north of the University of Maryland College Park campus.

The fire department did not immediately release details about the device or whether any threat was associated with it, saying only that the device has been made "safe."
