SPARTANBURG, S.C. (AP) - Excessive levels of mold spores have been found in two county-operated buildings in South Carolina.

The Herald-Journal of Spartanburg reported that tests conducted June 19 found elevated levels of more spores in the Department of Juvenile Justice building.

The testing was conducted after water leaked into wall joints on the roof that had recently been repaired.

Elevated levels were also found inside the South Carolina Probation, Parole and Pardon Services building.

Spartanburg County owns the building where the juvenile justice department is located and leases the other building.

Officials say no workers will be displaced during repair work.

The county has had mold problems before, with mold reported in the 60-year-old county courthouse last year which forced the closure of two courtrooms and some offices.
