Smoke and flames rise after a Marine jet crashed into a residential area in the desert community of Imperial, Calif., setting two homes on fire Wednesday, June 4, 2014. The pilot ejected safely, and there was no immediate word of any injuries on the ground. The Harrier AV-8B went down at 4:20 p.m. in Imperial, a city of about 15,000 near the U.S.-Mexico border about 90 miles east of San Diego. (AP Photo/Imperial Valley Press, Chelcey Adami)
