Joint Base Lewis-McChord families worried over moldy houses

SEATTLE — Military families in Washington state have raised concerns saying housing at their base made them sick.

KOMO-TV reported Thursday that multiple families who were living on Joint Base Lewis-McChord are now living in motels and recreational vehicles because of moldy conditions.

Private company officials from Lincoln Military Housing say they are working to fix the problem.

Army wife Kelsey White says the mold gave her family serious health issues including her 7-month-old son Tobias.

Company officials say the White family was put in a motel and then moved to an RV since no other on-base housing was offered.

Company officials say they are preparing a statement in response to concerns.

Attorneys for the White family and 22 other military families expect to file a lawsuit in the next few months.
