 MINNEAPOLIS, Minn. (FOX 47) -- A checkpoint at Minneapolis St. Paul International Airport has reopened Friday after fumes sent several TSA officers to the hospital.

First responders were called to the Lindbergh Terminal around 9:30 a.m. on reports of a smoky odor and fumes making some people nauseous.    
  
Passengers were relocated while the airport's fire department tried to find the source.
   
Seven Transportation Security Administration agents who were feeling ill were taken to Hennepin County Medical Center.
   
All agents have been released from the hospital. The source of the smell was not located and the checkpoint has since been reopened.
