Heat and lack of rain to be blamed for Iowa fish kills

Posted:
DES MOINES (KWWL) -

High heat and a lack of rain is to blame for fish kills reported across Iowa. Hundreds of fish in a pond near West Des Moines City Hall died over the weekend. Officials say it's most likely from a lack of oxygen. Earlier this month, hundred of fish were killed in eastern Iowa's Swan Lake.

The Iowa Department of Natural Resources says similar fish kills are being seen all across the state.
