Fish Killed In Lexington Creek; Sewage May Be To Blame

An environmental response team was back on the scene Tuesday of a fish kill in Fayette County.

Firefighters told 27 NEWSFIRST a malfunction at the East Hickman Creek pump station on Buckhorn Drive released raw sewage into the creek, but officials say there hasn't been any report of an overflow at that station.

Wildlife officials say they did find some dead fish a few miles downstream, but say there is no threat to drinking water in Lexington.
