A military official says an explosive ordnance disposal detail is on the scene of an F-16 fighter jet crash in Southern California but he will not say whether any armaments were aboard the aircraft.

Col. Thomas McNamara, vice commander of the Air Force Reserve’s 452nd Air Mobility Wing, said Friday morning that more information will be released in the afternoon.

Authorities have cordoned off the area for three-quarters of a mile (1.21 kilometers) around the scene, including a section of heavily traveled Interstate 215. No residential areas are affected.

The aircraft fell out of the sky Thursday afternoon and crashed through the roof of a warehouse near March Air Reserve Base, but there was no explosion.
