ARKANSAS CITY, Kan. (AP) -- A south-central Kansas packing plant is resuming full operation less than a month after a fire caused heavy damage.

The fire on Sept. 25 started in a conveyor belt in the fabrication at Creekstone Farms Premium Beef in Arkansas City.

The Arkansas City Traveler reports (http://bit.ly/19ZtKyk ) Creekstone began receiving cattle Sunday in preparation for resuming beef production Wednesday.

The company said in a news release that it continued supplying customers with its Black Angus beef products during the shutdown through arrangements with other packers. Ground beef and shipping operations resumed within a week after the fire.
