California , May 17 : An F-16 Fighting Falcon fighter jet crashed into a warehouse at the March Air Reserve Base in Riverside County here on Thursday.
The pilot ejected before the plane crashed and is being medically evaluated, according to Riverside County Sheriff's Department.

Quoting local media reports, Sputnik said that first responders requested "full hazardous materials response" as the multirole fighter jet was loaded with ordnance.

It is unclear whether the pilot sustained any injuries or if there was a co-pilot. The public has been advised to stay away from the area "until directed otherwise," by law enforcement officials.
