The report said water runoff from suppression of the fire at AmRep entered a private pond on Sope Creek, where the dead fish were found. Dead fish were also found in the creek itself, directly below the pond.
The AmRep manufacturing center is on Industrial Park Road near Cobb Parkway and Allgood Road in Marietta. The plant, which makes professional-grade chemical products, broke out in a two-alarm fire, engulfing the entire warehouse and burning a building to the ground.
Days after the fire, Cobb residents called Marietta Power and Water to report dead and dying fish in the creek, which runs a about 2 miles south of the plant in east Cobb.
