Household canine lifeless after bee assault in Las Vegas neighborhood

LAS VEGAS (AP) – The Las Vegas Fire Department warns the public after a dog dies and several people were stung in a bee attack.

Firefighters say warmer weather in the Las Vegas metropolitan area also creates swarms of bees.

They were called on Saturday after a bee stung a dog several times in a neighborhood in the northwest. Several local residents also reported being stabbed.

Las Vegas Fire & Rescue spokesman Tim Szymanski urged people to stay indoors if possible. He says that bees release a smell when they sting someone who pulls other bees out of the colony.

He says there have been three bee-related calls this month.

Meanwhile, homeowners in the area have called an exterminator in hopes of locating and removing the beehive.
