An evacuation of about 200 residents and workers in Castleberry ended Friday, according to reports.
Homes and businesses had to be evacuated Tuesday after a CSX train carrying toxic chemicals derailed near the center of the Conecuh County town.
The initial derailment did not cause any injuries, but according to reports two workers cleaning up the spill were treated at a local hospital when they came into contact with phenol, one of the chemicals that leaked from a wrecked rail car.
