Hundreds of employees were evacuated Wednesday after a liquid nitrogen spill in northeast El Paso. The leak happened at Boeing Integrated Defense Systems. About 180 gallons of liquid nitrogen leaked from a 10-thousand gallon tank. Although the leak was outside the building, the employees were evacuated as a precaution. Hazmat crews repaired the tank. There is no word on what caused the leak.
