GREENSBURG, Ind.– Residents at Lake Point Apartments in Greensburg were concerned when they found a large number of fish dead in their apartment pond.

Officials with the Department of Natural Resouces Division of Fish and Wildlife said this is a case of a shallow retention pond that quickly heated up due to intense temperatures lately, and caused the fish to die off due to lack of oxygen.

The Indiana Department of Environmental Management also looked into the situation and said nothing suspicious was suspected, but they will continue to investigate.
