BOSSIER CITY, LA (KSLA) - One man was swarmed and stung several times by bees late Monday morning as he tried to trim a tree in the 2000 block of Landau Ln. in Bossier City's Carriage Oaks neighborhood.

Four members of the Bossier City Fire firefighters crew that responded didn't escape without a few stings of their own.

None were seriously injured.  A professional bee keeper has been called in to handle the hive.
