Boiling beeswax attracting bees? (TN)

My mom is new to keeping bees and just harvested honey for the first time. Today she boiled the beeswax she collected, and somehow bees starting getting into the house, (about 15 she said) and started swarming it. She later put the pot outside to cool off, and about 50 more bees came over and we’re swarming it, and a bunch of them drowned 🙁 Has anyone ever experienced anything like this? Or have any tips to avoid it? Just sounds so bizarre to me… (Also, the hive is about 200 feet away from the house.)
