SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- The bag packaging plant damaged by a six-alarm blaze last Friday is back open.

The fire began in a storage area outside the Smurfit-Stone Container Corporation.

The blaze caused about five-and-a-half (m) million dollars in damage to the plant's roll stock and sections of the roof, but firefighters were able to knock it down before it reached the building.

No one was injured.

Company officials say they opened the plant back up today and will return the plant to full operation as soon as possible.

The cause of the fire is still under investigation.
