SAN ANTONIO -- The scene looked explosive after a fire shot out of a roof near the AT&T Center Parkway on the city's east side.

San Antonio firefighters responded to the call around 2 p.m. at a box plant warehouse. The building mostly contains paper products.

When firefighters arrived, they were told that wood on the roof had caught fire. Sure enough, when crews mounted ladders to investigate they found a large amount of debris from tree limbs, leaves and cardboard had ignited under the Air Vac system.

Firefighters quickly managed to get the flames under control.
