TUCSON (KGUN9-TV) - Northwest Fire rescued two hikers who were attacked by a bee swarm in the 10000 block of Onyx Moon near Silverbell and Twin Peaks.

Cpt. Adam Goldberg tells KGUN that an 18-year-old and a 17-year-old were stung while hiking.

Both are reported to be in good condition after being stung multiple times.

Goldberg says a second team of rescuers hiked up the mountain to meet up with rescuers and two patients.

Both patients were evaluated by NWFD paramedics.
