Bees sting workers in Scottsdale, Chandler

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. (AP) - Bees stung two workers clearing brush at a vacant commercial building in Scottsdale, sending one to a hospital with more than 100 stings. A second attack was at a construction site in Chandler.

The Scottsdale Fire Department says the other worker was stung a few times and released at the scene Tuesday morning.

The hospitalized worker's condition was not immediately available.

Work at the site resumed after a beekeeper removed the hive.

Later in the morning in Chandler, three workers at a construction site near Arizona Avenue and Frye were stung.

A beekeeper was seen removing a bee hive from a home near Elgin and Washington.
