A hazardous materials team was called to a Boston hotel Thursday afternoon after police responded to a medical call for two people suffering drug overdoses, police said.

Officers responded to the medical call at the Charles River Inn at 1800 Soldiers Field Road about 5:15 p.m., according to Officer Stephen McNulty, a Boston police spokesman.

The call prompted a hazmat response, McNulty said, for what was “initially believed to be fentanyl,” pending a toxicology report. No further information was immediately available.
