CLEVELAND - The first set of explosions for the filming of "Captain America: The Winter Soldier" were set off in downtown Cleveland Wednesday morning.
A giant ball of flames went up into the air at about 10 a.m. Crews are filming a chase and shooting scene at the corner of East 6th Street and Rockwell Avenue.
Filming started Monday, but Wednesday was the first day any pyrotechnics were used.
Many other roads, including the Shoreway , will be closed over the next month while Marvel film crews shoot other scenes in the movie.
