FORT BRAGG, N.C. (AP) — Officials for North Carolina’s Fort Bragg say that about 200 soldiers have been moved from their barracks after an anonymous complaint revealed mold in some housing units.

Spokesman Maj. Dan Lessard says the 1st Special Forces Command soldiers, part of the Command’s 528th Special Operations Sustainment Brigade, were temporarily moved into alternate housing Oct. 10 following an air quality test.

Maj. Gen. John Brennan added that Directorate of Public Works employees are addressing problems with heating, ventilation and air conditioning systems and mold in two barracks.

The issues were discovered when a soldier filed a complaint through an internal webpage in September.
