PHOENIX -- A swarm of bees sent residents of a Phoenix neighborhood scrambling as at least 15 people were stung.

Fire officials said the bees apparently were angered Wednesday night by a beekeeper attending to hives in her backyard.

One woman was taken to a hospital for treatment of multiple stings, but her injuries were described as non-life threatening.
