BIRMINGHAM, Ala. -- Constant moisture and humidity may be feeding a dangerous black mold in one Birmingham-area high school.
A laboratory in Florida issued a recent report identifying the mold as Stachybotrys. The fungus was found in a hallway at Mortimer Jordan High School.


Health officials say the rare black mold can cause health problems, such as breathing difficulty and bleeding lungs. The fungus is also capable of causing death in infants.

Stachybotrys generally grows on wood, paper, ceiling tiles and dry wall. The fungus often grows after a flood or when a sewer backs up.


Officials said cleaning up the mold is dangerous and costly. Eradicating the fungus in a home can cost up to $10,000.


Jefferson County School Superintendent Bobby Neighbors said Tuesday the school district has not commissioned any testing at Mortimer Jordan.
