Flea Infestation Shuts Down Ohio Health Department

A flea infestation has gotten so bad at one health department in Ohio that officials have shut down the building for three days.

The Fairfield Department of Health in Lancaster will be closed while exterminators try to eliminate the pest problem, The Columbus Dispatch reported.

The building, where chipmunks and bats have also been spotted, has been dealing with this problem for some time, according to the report.

The health department is expected to reopen on Monday.
