(Milfay-AP) -- Hundreds of natural-gas wells between Oklahoma City and Tulsa remain shut down following a fire at the Duke Energy Field Services natural gas processing plant.

The plant at Milfay is also closed while investigators look for the cause of the Friday fire that injured three employees.

Duke spokesman Tom Long says the plant is expected to reopen next week.

One of the three employees injured in the fire remains hospitalized in fair condition. A second injured worker was released from the hospital on Saturday while the third was treated and released.
