Authorities still don't know what sickened hundreds of people in and around the Dona Ana County Industrial Park near the Mexican border Tuesday morning.
A one-mile evacuation area around the park near the Santa Teresa port of entry has been lifted, and the temporary shelter for 200 evacuees at Santa Teresa High School has been deactivated.
The industrial park itself remains evacuated, and the Doña Ana County Airport at Santa Teresa remains closed to air traffic.
Right now hazmat crews are in the industrial park taking samples to determine what might have sickened the individuals who sought and received treatment.
