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.

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.
