I don't see anything in the news about it, and the video disappeared from Facebook.

The duct work above the engine caught fire, probably from the exhaust of the engine. There was some drop down onto the top of the engine but I was told there was no damage to it. This is the second time a fire has started in the exhaust above this engine. This one at BET and at South Hampton a few weeks ago. Fire department quickly knocked down the fire.
