MESA, AZ - Several firefighters and three men were attacked by bees in a Mesa neighborhood Tuesday morning.

Three men were cutting down branches from a mature tree at a residence near Brown Road and Center Street.

One man was 10 to 12 feet off the ground and was cutting dead parts off the tree for about 45 minutes before the bees attacked around 9 a.m., according to fire officials.

The bees attacked the man's face and he was reportedly stung up to 100 times.

A second man on the ground heard the screams and tried to fight off the bees with a hose.  He was stung, too. 

Firefighters arrived and said the first man was in pain, but showed no signs of respiratory problems or swelling.
