Firefighters from several departments battled a fire of unknown origin Thursday morning at the Olympic Motor Lodge in Brentwood, Suffolk County fire officials said.

Suffolk police said a 911 call reporting the fire at the motel on Motor Parkway was received at 9:03 a.m.

Eastbound Motor Parkway was closed in the area for more than an hour.

Fire officials said firefighters from Brentwood, Commack and Hauppauge responded to the scene and “had water on the fire” before 9:20 a.m. Reports from the scene were that the motel had been evacuated, police and fire officials said.

Brentwood Fire Chief Mike Derbyshire said that Brentwood-Legion Ambulance also responded while Bay Shore covered the fire house on standby.

Officials said there were no reported injuries.

Police said Arson Squad detectives are investigating, but said the cause of the fire remains “undetermined.”

CORRECTION: An earlier version of this story misstated the departments that responded. Brentwood, Commack and Hauppauge firefighters responded.
