The Alvarado Transportation Station is back open after an evacuation on Thursday morning.

Albuquerque fire crews evacuated the building due to a chemical smell around 12 p.m. Investigators determined that two cleaning solutions mixed together created the odor. Nothing hazardous was found.

Two people who were hypersensitive to the solution were taken to the hospital to be evaluated for minor inhalation.
