    After 48 hours, a boil water advisory for some parts of Prince George's County has been lifted.

    About 100,000 residents in parts of the county were advised to boil their water before drinking it after a 24-inch water main broke on Tanglewood Drive in Hyattsville. The advisory was issued at 7:55 p.m. Tuesday, the Washington Suburban Sanitary Commission (WSSC) said in an email, and was lifted just before midnight Thursday.

    Officials said no evidence of contamination was found in the water after several tests.

    The advisory had applied to residents in a wide area: Bladensburg, Brentwood, Cheverly, Chillum, Edmonston, Fairmount Heights, Glen Arden, Hyattsville, Landover Hills, Mount Rainier and Seat Pleasant.
