A state agency has cited a North Carolina company after a worker was electrocuted and two others injured back in April. WITN reports the N.C. Department of Labor says it found two serious violations against Caldwell & Jones near Mount Olive and fined the company $9,000. Cashwell & Jones and its 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. The worker was killed as they were installing a flagpole in front of the business in April.
