Suits target fertilizer plant owner in wake of deadly Texas explosion

Plaintiffs accuse Adair Grain of negligence

Just two days after the Boston Marathon bombings, another deadly explosion killed innocent people halfway across the country.

On April 17, an explosion at a fertilizer plant in West, Texas, killed 14 people, injured hundreds and destroyed dozens of nearby homes and an apartment complex. Now, the plant’s owner—Adair Grain Inc.—is facing two negligence lawsuits from Andrea Jones Gutierrez, a woman who lost her apartment in the disaster, and several insurance companies representing various individuals, churches and businesses affected by the explosion.
