Two civilians and a firefighter were injured Sunday night in a Boyle Heights apartment fire, a Los Angeles Fire Department official said.


It took 75 firefighters more than half an hour to knock down the blaze in a two-story apartment in the 500 block of  North Cummings Street.


One civilian suffered moderate burns, while another was in serious condition after suffering respiratory difficulties, said Los Angeles Fire Department spokesman Erik Scott. The injured firefighter was in moderate condition with burns. All were taken to a hospital.
