Paper down the air vent?

The cover was off of the vent in my room and while I was making my bed a paper flew down the vent. It was a printed paper so it was about the size of a blank sheet of paper in copy machines or printers. I haven't needed to turn the heat on yet, but itll be cold this week so I'll have to. Is it okay if its in there or will it catch fire? What do I do?

    Turn the fan on without the heat and the paper should blow out. The duct work does not get hot enough to cause paper to ignite so I would be more concerned with the noise.

    With the vent cover still off, turn on the air handler fan, without the heat, to try and get the paper to blow back out.

    Use a match to see if it is blocking the air ducts.
