EDMONTON, Ky. (AP) -- A south-central Kentucky courthouse is closing for two days so that black mold can be removed from the historic structure.

Reports say the Metcalfe County Courthouse will close early Friday and won't reopen until Tuesday. The newspaper reports the mold developed due to leaks in the building's heating and cooling system. The cost for the removal is estimated at about $20,000.

Judge-Executive Greg Wilson says a hygienist tested each room in the building for black mold and found that the building "is just full of it."
