CLEVELAND -- Some early morning fireworks Wednesday morning, compliments of the film crew for "Captain America" 2.

The production crew filmed a pyrotechnic sequence at East 6th and Rockwell that involved a car explosion and fireball.

Several crashed and bullet-ridden vehicles used in a previously lensed sequence, are being stored nearby on E. 3rd Street near Rockwell.

Security has tightened around the location with production reportedly requesting those in neighboring buildings to keep their windows shut in an effort to protect the integrity of the film.

The only star of the film spotted at this location continues to be Samuel L. Jackson who portrays Nick Fury in the film. As of noon Wednesday, there has been no sighting of Captain America himself, Chris Evans.

Production is expected to continue on E. 6th at Rockwell through May 25.

Portions of "Captain America: The Winter Soldier" are being filmed from now through mid-June throughout the city.

A big chase sequence is expected to be filmed beginning next week on the West Shoreway. The filming will shut down the highway between Lakewood and East 9th for about two weeks.
