KERMIT, W.Va. (WYMT) - Security camera video led Mingo County health officials to shut down a pizza hut in Kermit, West Virginia.

The video, provided to WYMT by CBS affiliate WOWK, shows an employee urinating in the restaurant's kitchen sink.

Community members say they are appalled at the unsanitary act, with some people vowing never to eat at the restaurant again.

Pizza Hut corporate officials confirm the man is a district manager, and has been fired.

The Mingo County Health Department shut down the store, citing conditions constituting a "substantial hazard to the public health."

The Pizza Hut Corporation released a statement, which says in part they are "embarrassed" by the man's actions, and that pizza hut has "zero tolerance for violations" of its operating standards.

Mingo County Health Department officials say it could be days or even weeks before they consider reopening the Pizza Hut.
