Flea Infestation Shuts Down Health Department
STEVE INSKEEP, host:
Good morning. I'm Steve Inskeep.
Workers at a building in Ohio discovered they had a problem with fleas. They might have called the health department, except they were the health department. The Fairfield County Department of Health had to shut down. Fleas spread disease. The building had to be cleaned and fogged with insecticide. The health commissioner says the fleas had been a problem in that building for years. We have no word if the commissioner was scratching his ear as he said this.
