Hundreds of dead fish found in Weathersfield lake

Posted: Updated:
WEATHERSFIELD TWP., Ohio -

Neighbors around Westwood Lake in Weathersfield are wondering what is killing hundreds of fish in the lake.

Dead fish have drifted into the shoreline, while others can be seen floating on the lake.  A resident says he and his son starting noticing the fish about a week ago

"About a week ago or so we noticed that a lot of them were coming into shore. We started looking out there further out in the lake and  there's more and more every day," said Bill Kren who has lived at the lake for three years.

The Ohio Division of Wildlife said it was not aware of the problem but said is a concern and they will be looking into it.
