RALEIGH, N.C. (WITN) - The state is citing a Mount Olive company after one worker was electrocuted and two others injured back in April.

The fatality happened as workers were putting up a flag pole in front of Cashwell & Jones on Highway 55 outside of Mount Olive.

The state Labor Department said it found two serious violations against the company and fined them $9,000.

Cashwell & Jones, and their parent company, Harvey Fertilizer and Gas, have 15 days to pay the fine, request an informal conference with the Labor Department, or appeal the fine.
