Authorities say a man has died and two other people were hospitalized after bees attacked at least six people Thursday in the Tucson suburb of Marana. Police in Marana say the swarming bees came from a 100-pound open beehive that was in a tree inside a home’s backyard.

They say three people passing through the area were stung hundreds of times and taken to a hospital for treatment. Three Northwest Fire District firefighters dispatched to the scene also were stung. Authorities say one of the firefighters was stung about 60 times and was treated and released from hospital.

The name of the man who died wasn’t immediately released by Marana police.
