The Tucson Fire Department responded to six different locations for bee related incidents Sunday.

No one was hurt.

Calls came from across the city, fire officials said. The majority of the calls were from people calling to report bee swarms.

Fire officials said if a swarm is not attacking, it is best to keep your distance and that in most cases the swarm will move on without incident.

If attacked, cover your face with something and run to the nearest home, car, or other shelter.

If a swarm is attacking a person or animal, call 911, officials said.
