A Marines spokeswoman says a military jet that crashed in a Southern California neighborhood hit some homes after the pilot ejected.
Cpl. Melissa Lee says the pilot ejected safely and was taken to a hospital for evaluation. UPDATE: U.S. Military reports no civilian injuries on the ground.
Witnesses say two houses caught fire after the crash early Wednesday evening in Imperial, about 90 miles east of San Diego.
A Marine spokesman, Lance Cpl. Christopher Johns, says the jet was a Harrier from Marine Corps Air Station in Yuma, Arizona.
