    STORM LAKE, Iowa (AP) - Company officials say the fire-damaged turkey plant in Storm Lake is expected to remain closed through Tuesday.

    Saturday night's blaze caused a portion of the roof to collapse at the Hillshire Brands plant. One firefighter was injured but was soon released after treatment at a hospital.

    Fire crews from four departments were sent to the plant, which employs around 600 people.

    The cause of the fire is being investigated.
