Published Thursday, November 22, 2018

Witnesses estimated that 20 people were stung by an aggressive mass of bees that menaced passers-by in downtown Huntington Beach on Saturday. One person was hospitalized, the Fire Department said.

The Fire Department responded at about noon to reports of hundreds of agitated bees in an alleyway between Sixth and Seventh streets near Pacific Coast Highway.

"There was nothing to instigate it," department spokesman Eric Blaska said. "It was just another normal day down at the beach."

The incident prompted a three-engine response to the infested block. Authorities cordoned off the alley and alerted people on Twitter to steer clear of the area because of "aggressive bee behavior."

Firefighters sprayed foam at the bees in an attempt to disperse them.
