A fighter jet has crashed into a warehouse at March Air Reserve Base in the Moreno Valley area, authorities said Thursday.

There are normally between 2,000 and 6,000 Air Force reservists and other personnel on the base at any one time.

The pilot was ejected and being medically evaluated.

The pilot ejected before the aircraft hit the building at around 3.30pm on Thursday and was not hurt, according to the director of public affairs at the nearby March Air Reserve Base, Major Perry Covington.

'I turned around, and my co-worker just told me to get out, so I just made a run for it'. The pilot was taken to a hospital to be treated, according to the U.S. Air Force Reserve. It is not known if the five people from the deputy fire chief's report were included, or in addition to the twelve people described by Capt. Fernando Herrera.

The sprinkler system doused a small fire started as a result of the crash and a specialized team will work to secure the jet, the Associated Press reported.
