Mysterious spill on Vltava false alarm

Fire fighters and a waterworks specialist investigated a suspected chemical spill on the Vltava River on Tuesday, described as a gray-coloured “film” roughly three kilometres in length. Originally it was reported that the substance had killed a large number of fish as well as birds, but tests revealed that the substance was not toxic. The animals (sighted by the person who alerted the authorities) most likely died in recent floods that hit parts of the country.
