PASADENA, Calif. (AP) - Authorities say four people were stung when bees swarmed during a school graduation ceremony in Pasadena.

The Pasadena Star-News says (https://bit.ly/1KOMCrl ) paramedics initially responded Wednesday to a report that more than 30 people were stung on the campus of Pasadena High School. But just four people - a child and three adults - needed treatment of minor injuries. Nobody was hospitalized.

Firefighters used foam to douse a hive discovered inside of a utility vault. Fire spokeswoman Lisa Derderian said the hive would be destroyed.

The graduation ceremony for students of Sierra Madre Middle School went on as scheduled.
