EUFAULA — Two families are suing a McAlester propane company for more than $2 million over a deadly blast at a Eufaula sandblasting company.

The May 7 explosion left one man dead and another badly burned.

A local newspaper reports the families of the two men filed suit in McIntosh County.

Officials say 41-year-old Donald Wayne Hamiliton died June 9 from his injuries. Michael Leslie Cox suffered severe burns.

The wrongful death lawsuit filed by Hamilton's family seeks more $1 million against Allford Propane. The Cox family is also seeking more than $1 million.

The company said he would not comment about the legal actions. The suit blames the propane company for the explosion.
