WATERLOO, Iowa -- Firefighters had to be called after a plan to evict a swarm of bees went up in smoke. Residents used gasoline to start a fire in hopes of smoking out a hive of bees from under their home Thursday when the house caught on fire, Battalion Chief Virgil Powell said.

"It wasn't a very good plan," Powell said.

Only minor damage was reported and no one was injured.

Firefighters removed the hive by flushing it out with water, Powell said.
