20 people stung by bees at children's birthday party

TUCSON - A swarm of bees attacked a group of people at a children's party Saturday.

Firefighters responded to the Fort Lowell Park near Craycroft and Glenn just before 5pm.

Crews say about 20 children and adults were stung, most of them once or twice.

None had adverse reactions to the bee stings.

Firefighters dressed in protective gear moved the group's belongings to another area of the park, about 1,000 feet away so they could continue on with their festivities.

A professional exterminator company was called in to assist.

The bees were exterminated with foam.

No one was taken to the hospital.
