TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) -- Kansas health officials are cautioning people to stay out of three lakes where toxic blue-green algae has been confirmed.

The Department of Health and Environment issued warnings Thursday Logan City Lake in Phillips County, Memorial Park Lake (Veteran's Lake) in Barton County and the Marion Reservoir in Marion County.

The agency says people, pets and livestock should not drink or have contact with water in the lakes. Any fish caught in the lakes should be cleaned and rinsed with clean water, and only the fillet portion should be eaten.

KDHE says boating and fishing may be safe, but urges people to avoid direct contact such as swimming in the water.
