FIREFIGHTERS WORK near houses after a Marine jet crashed in a residential area in the desert community of Imperial, Calif., setting two homes on fire June 4. The pilot ejected safely, and there was no immediate word of any injuries on the ground. The Harrier AV-8B went down at 4:20 p.m. in Imperial, a city of about 15,000 near the U.S.-Mexico border about 90 miles east of San Diego.
