PEORIA, Ill. (AP) — Archer Daniels Midland has restarted operations at a corn processing plant in Illinois two days after an explosion forced the facility's closure.

ADM spokeswoman Jackie Anderson said Friday that the company plans to be back at full production in Peoria by Saturday.

Decatur-based ADM shut down production at the plant before dawn Wednesday after the explosion and a fire that followed. No one was seriously injured.

Firefighters said they found an open natural gas line in the ethanol distillery that was feeding the fire. But fire officials say the cause of the fire hasn't yet been determined.

The damage was estimated at more than $1 million.
