WEST, Texas – West High School is being torn down Friday as the town rebuilds from a horrific plant explosion eight months ago.

Fifteen people died when that fertilizer plant blew up, and the high school was seriously damaged. Since then students have been going to portable classrooms.

A $50 million plan includes building a new high school and middle school. They are set to open in 2015.
