At least five people were stung by a swarm of bees in a Corona neighborhood Thursday afternoon, prompting police and fire officials to temporarily close access to the area for public safety.

The bee attack was reported about 3:20 p.m. near Heavenly Way and Taber Street.

Firefighters arrived within a couple of minutes and encountered the victims and others trying to get away from the agitated insects, which continued to sting the pedestrians while crews were trying to assist them, according to reports from the scene.

Police officers cordoned off the area to prevent anyone else from being exposed to the angry swarm.
