Two Rescued from Nevada Bee Swarm

LAS VEGAS - Las Vegas firefighters rescued two people and three dogs from a swarm of hundreds of bees that went on the attack.

The bees attacked Saturday after a hollow tree containing their hive fell against a house and broke into several pieces.

The Las Vegas Fire Department says a woman, her 17-year old daughter and one of the dogs were stung several times.

There appeared to be no serious injuries.

Department spokesman Tim Szymanski says the bees followed the people and dogs inside their house.

The woman and teen were rescued using blankets to protect them as they were taken to a nearby ambulance and hospital. Firefighters used foam to attack the hive, and sucked bees out of the house using a vacuum.
