MONROE COUNTY, Ohio -
A fish kill spanning a few miles has been reported in a Monroe County creek near the site of a weekend fire at a gas well.

An Ohio Department of Natural Resources spokesman said he did not have details about the fish kill or whether it was related to the fire.

Authorities said a tubing malfunction led to the well pad fire that spread to about 20 trucks on the pad and set off explosions Saturday. Some families living nearby had to be evacuated temporarily.

The state continues to investigate.
