York Haven-- Pennsylvania environmental regulators are investigating a fish kill in the Susquehanna River.

The Department of Environmental Protection says it received reports of a fish kill near Brunner Island Steam Electric Station in northern York County. An inspector confirmed the fish kill.

Pennlive.com reports that Brunner Island was fined $25,000 in April over an operations glitch that killed more than 1,100 fish.

It's unclear if the coal-fired power plant had anything to do with the latest incident.
