Here's the good news-the pilot ejected safely and is okay. The crash started a brush fire that burned about 5 acres, but is now almost fully put out. Scary situation, but thank God the pilot and everyone on the ground is okay.
The Fire Department did a great job containing the fire, IIRC this area where the F/A-18 crashed was burned during the 2003 Cedar Fire.
I didn't hear the crash, I'm on the western side of Miramar. I saw a few helicopters and I heard on the news that one of them helped put the fire.
