Mike Eliason, prize-winning, veteran photographer for the Santa Barbara News-Press, has been fired, apparently after he complained to Cal/OSHA about alleged newsroom mold issues.

No one is commenting for the record, but according to reports circulating in the community, Eliason filed a complaint with the state Division of Occupational Safety and Health about a potentially hazardous situation.
