ARKANSAS CITY, Kan. (AP) -- Production workers at Creekstone Farms packing plant in Arkansas City will continue getting paid while crews clean up from a fire.

The Arkansas City Traveler (http://is.gd/gOh15c ) reports that Creekstone officials were meeting Tuesday with fabrication, slaughter and ground beef department employees to share the news. General counsel and human resources director Doug Mackay says he needs employees to stay until full production resumes.

Mackay says Creekstone is carrying out limited activities this week and plans to ramp up production each day.

The cause of the fire hasn't been determined. It broke out Wednesday on the east side of the plant in fabrication and refrigerated storage areas. Flames were spread by a product conveyor belt.

Creekstone Farms processes beef at the plant about 45 miles southeast of Wichita.
