TUCSON - Tucson firefighters responded to a home Thursday evening after two people and a dog were attacked by a swarm of bees.
Emergency crews were called at 5:15 p.m. to the 700 Block of North Seventh Avenue after two residents and one dog were stung by a swarm of bees.
The residents of the home heard their dog barking in the yard and when they went outside to check on their pet, they found it covered in hundreds of bees.
While attempting to get to their dog they were stung and went inside to call 911.
Firefighters arrived on scene already dressed in protective gear and rescued the dog, which was washed clean of all the bees, but not before being stung more than 100 times.
One resident was stung twice, the other was stung five times.
The dog's condition is not known.
