Victims of West Fertilizer Blast File Suit Against Manufacturer

Dozens of victims of the West Fertilizer Co. explosion in West, Texas have fallen in line with the city and filed suit against CF Industries, a producer of ammonium nitrate. 

Hundreds of tons of ammonium nitrate, used to feed crops, were stored at West Fertilizer. The volatile chemical compound exploded April 17 following a fire at the retailer. The force of the blast destroyed more than 100 homes, an apartment complex, two schools and a retirement center. The cause of the fire was never determined.
