The Brookhaven Town Fire Marshall is investigating the cause of a brush fire that spanned several acres behind the Calverton Shooting Range, according to Kevin Brooks, first assistant chief of the Riverhead Fire Department.

Four fire departments — Riverhead, Flanders, Manorville and Eastport — responded to the blaze, which broke out around 1:30 p.m. Monday afternoon, Mr. Brooks said.

The fire was under control within 40 minutes, he said.

The Calverton Shooting Range, located off on Nugent Drive, was closed briefly as crews battled the fire, but was reopened by 3 p.m.

No injuries were reported.
