One man has died after a small explosion at the Stimson Lumber Mill in Gaston Wednesday afternoon. Two other male workers were injured in the blast. Ken Builderback with the Gaston Fire Department says the men thought a hydraulic accumulator they were working on was not pressurized, but it was. The workers' names have not been released.
