More employees will be returning to work at Creekstone Farms in Arkansas City nearly two weeks after a fire.
NewsCow reports that workers in the ground beef department were to return to regular start times on Monday. That department has not been in operation since the fire on September 25.
Several other workers have not been called back to work yet, but Creekstone is continuing to pay all employees regardless.
The fire started in a finishing area of the plant around a large conveyor system. The company sustained millions in damage and lost sales.
