FORT COLLINS, Colo. (AP) — Colorado wildlife officials are investigating the deaths of thousands of fish in the Cache La Poudre (cash la POO'-dur) River in Fort Collins.

The Fort Collins Coloradoan  reported  Friday the fish kill was first reported on Sept. 21.

The agency says the dead fish number in the thousands but hasn't compiled a more specific estimate.

Officials haven't said when the investigation will be complete.
