  Original Published: 6/25/2013  The Texas town devastated by a fertilizer plant explosion is suing two companies.   On April 17, a blast killed 15 people, leveled numerous homes, and damaged two schools and a nursing home.   The city of West accuses Adair Grain of negligently storing ammonium nitrate on its grounds before the blast.   Their suit also accuses C-F Industries of selling about 200 tons of the compound to the company without investigating whether the plant could store it safely.   C-F Industries responded it was sympathetic to those whose lives were affected, but believes there is no basis for the suit.   Adair Grain did not return a request for comment.    The suit was filed the week after the Federal Emergency Management Agency denied additional aid to the town.
