A three-alarm fire Friday at 6055 La Jolla Blvd. destroyed a third-floor condominium and sent an occupant and a firefighter to Scripps Memorial Hospital, fire officials said.

Fifty firefighters fought the blaze from 2 to 5 p.m., San Diego Fire Department spokesman Larry Stewart said.

A firefighter who burned both hands and one of the three occupants of the condominium complex, who suffered smoke inhalation, were taken to the hospital, he said.

An unrelated fire damaged a mortuary at 5050 Federal Blvd. in San Diego, Stewart said. It began at 1 p.m. and burned one body before 20 firefighters extinguished the blaze 15 minutes later, he said.
