SAN DIEGO A Marine Corps spokesman says a bucket of cleaning solution fell from an Osprey and smashed through the roof of a San Diego business, but nobody was hurt.">KGTV-TV says the accident happened Wednesday evening near the Miramar air station.

Lt. Tyler Balzer said the 5-gallon bucket of cleaning solution was strapped down inside the Osprey, but it somehow came loose and slid out shortly after the chopper took off from Miramar.

The bucket plunged through the roof of a closed auto shop and clipped a motor home.

A half-dozen vehicles were splashed with the watery solution.

Balzer said the shop owners can file a claim with the Marine Corps for restitution.
