A fire that happened at the Perdue Chicken Cook Plant in Perry is still under investigation and the facility remains closed.
Perdue Farms spokesperson Judy DeYoung says the cook plant will be at least partially closed Wednesday as well.

Houston County Fire Department has turned over the investigation to Perdue representatives.
DeYoung also said that investigators with the company were on-site Tuesday evaluating the cause of the fire, but that has not yet been determined.
The processing plant and the distribution center were not involved in the fire and continue to operate.
