Capt. Chris Jurvig with Tucson Fire tells KGUN9 that the puppy was attacked in the backyard of a home in the 700 block of north 7th Avenue Thursday.

The owners tried to save the puppy but were getting stung themselves.

Fire crews arrived and were able to save the puppy. The owners were each stung between two and five times but did not require medical attention and left to take their puppy to a vet.

No word yet on the puppy's condition.

Firefighters foamed the swarm.
