Virginia Beach firefighters had their hands full this afternoon after a navy jet crashes into an apartment building setting it aflame.

No reports of casualties on the ground from the crash, though several bukldings were clearly, heavily damaged.

The F-18 went down shortly after noon eastern time not long after taking off from the naval base in Virginia Beach.

Both the pilot and co-pilot ejected safely and were taken to a hospital to be checked out.
