A Marine Corps spokesman says no one was injured when a jet crashed in a residential area in a Southern California desert community.
Despite the jet smashing into at least one house and setting at least two on fire in a row of tightly spaced homes in Imperial on Wednesday, 1st Lt. Jose Negrete (neh-GREH-tay) says no one on the ground was hurt.
He says the pilot ejected safely and was taken to a hospital only for evaluation.
The roof of the house that took the brunt of the crash was gone, but the walls were still standing.
