A local manufacturing plant is closed for some employees for several days.

A fire broke out at FPL Foods early Thursday morning.

Authorities say the blaze was confined to a small area of the plant and no equipment was damaged. Plant leaders say it'll be about a week before they are fully functional.

We're told the cause was likely electrical.

The company says maintenance workers and supervisors should call Friday to see about reporting to work.
