IMPERIAL, Calif. (AP) -- 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. There's no word on whether anyone on the ground was hurt.
 
   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.
