State investigating fish kill near site of well fire in eastern Ohio

State officials are investigating a fish kill in an eastern Ohio creek near the location of a fire at a Statoil well pad in Monroe County on Saturday, reports the Columbus Dispatch. An Ohio Department of Natural Resources spokesman told the newspaper that the agency learned about the fish kill in Possum Creek on Sunday, but could not confirm any link to the well fire at this point. The Eisenbarth well pad caught fire because of a malfunction in hydraulic tubing, authorities said. The fire spread to about 20 trucks lined up on the well pad, triggering explosions.
