FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WANE) – A Fort Wayne restaurant was closed by the Fort Wayne-Allen County Health Department due to cockroaches. It reopened two days later.
The closure is the 24th closure in Fort Wayne so far this year. See the full list of closures on the Health Department’s website.
A notice posted on the door of Saigon Restaurant, 2006 South Calhoun Street, said the closure was effective July 7.
Saigon was closed in October 2013 for a pest-related issue. Additional information on Monday’s closure was not immediately available from the health department.
The establishment was closed until July 9, when a follow-up inspection cleared the pest violation, at minimum.
According to health department records, during an annual inspection last October, Saigon was cited for 16 violations including 7 critical violations. Some of the critical violations included: preventing contamination, holding temperatures, pest control, and handwashing.
Saigon Restaurant serves Vietnamese cuisine.
