(Pryor-AP) -- A hearing continued Wednesday in Pryor on a request to make a lawsuit against three Arkansas poultry companies a class-action case.

Four property owners at Grand Lake are suing Tyson Foods, Simmons Foods and Peterson Farms for allegedly contaminating the lake. They say the pollution has reduced the value of their property.

The group wants all property owners around the northeast Oklahoma lake included in the lawsuit.

The hearing began Tuesday and could continue through Thursday.
