HANOVER, Pennsylvania — A central Pennsylvania chemical plant has been accused of not completely paying an environmental remediation company for cleanup services after a fire caused $20 million in damages.

Pennlive.com (http://bit.ly/1NPdWC7 ) reports that Environmental Products & Services of Vermont is suing Miller Chemical & Fertilizer for nearly $7 million in federal court.

The Hanover chemical plant— located about 30 miles south of Harrisburg —caught fire in June 2015. Miller Chemical officials have said an electrical malfunction caused the fire, though state police couldn't determine the exact cause.

Officials said contaminated water runoff from efforts to extinguish the blaze killed thousands of fish in Conewago Creek. Fishing, boating and swimming were prohibited for about a month following the fire.

Attempts to reach a Miller Chemical spokeswoman weren't immediately successful.
