Wasps attack Tucson schoolchildren

TUCSON, Ariz. — Wasp stings prompted the Mountain Vista Fire Department to
respond to a Tucson-area school Tuesday.

According to KVOA-TV, those stung at Butterfield
Elementary School included two children and one adult.

Mountain Vista Fire District spokeswoman Laura Halady says the children were
taken to a hospital as a precaution.

While fire officials initially said the wasps came from a nest near a goal post
on school grounds, Marana school district spokeswoman Tamara Crawley says there
was no nest present.
