    The Wilson-Gray YMCA in Hartford closed early Wednesday after a phone threat.

    YMCA officials confirmed the facility on Albany Avenue received a phone call threat, but did not provide details on what was said. Police responded to investigate and the building was secured for the investigation.

    The branch is closed Wednesday evening and all classes and programs canceled.

    An after-camp program for Camp Dakota was moved to a different location and parents informed of the change.

    “We are coordinating with the authorities to ensure that everyone is safe, and will evacuate the people who are already in the branch when law enforcement determines that it is safe to do so. We will make a determination on operations for Thursday when more information is available,” company officials wrote in a notice.

    More information was not immediately available.
