FORT CARSON, Colo. (AP) -- Five barracks under construction at Fort Carson are being tested for mold after spores were discovered in least one of them.

The mold was found this summer during an inspection of modules that are pre-fabricated elsewhere, transported to the post and then stacked to form the buildings.

Hensel Phelps Construction of Greeley says the mold problem has been remedied.

Hensel Phelps President Jeff Wenaas said the mold grew after some of the modules got wet during transport.

Fort Carson spokeswoman Dee McNutt said Hensel Phelps has been working with mold experts to identify, remediate and clear the mold. She says all the buildings will be tested and remediated before ownership is transferred to the Army.

The buildings are on the southern part of the post.
