BT: Heard thru the grapevine that paxs were informed the airplane had to turn back to SIN due to mechanical issue. When the plane landed safely, the relieved paxs started to applause. Suddenly, the plane engine caught fire and exploded. Paxs were shocked and some ran towards the doors, trying to open them. Cabin crew had to stop these paxs from opening the doors due to safety concern.
