Fort Wayne bar closed by health department due to violation

FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WANE) — Mitchell’s Sports Bar and Grill in Fort Wayne has been shut down by the health department.

According to a red sign on the entrance of the bar the Allen County Health Department closed the establishment due to violating the governors executive order Wednesday. The sign does not say how long the bar will be closed or the exact reason the bar was closed.

Earlier in the day WANE 15 went to the bar and found several patrons without masks and not socially distancing.
