Ft. Rucker Tests Reveal Nothing Harmful

Officials at Fort Rucker say a bioterrorism scare at the Army post last Thursday turned up nothing suspicious. Public Affairs spokesman Ken Holder would not say what type of testing was conducted, citing security concerns.

The tests were performed after employees reported that suspicious substances came out of air ducts when the heating systems were turned on at two buildings. Holder said military and civilian workers have returned to work. He also said last week's event received more attention from the media than the public.

Health department workers in Coffee County said the matter received little or no attention from area citizens. Security at the Army post, which covers portions of Dale, Houston and Coffee counties remains tight.
