According to data from FlightRadar24.com, Aer Lingus flight EI106 departed New York's JFK Airport at 21:54 local time, 44 minutes behind its scheduled time. However, things went wrong either during takeoff or minutes later, as the aircraft ascended to 5,300 feet and diverted to its origin airport just 19 minutes later, landing at 22:13 local time.  While sources online have indicated a right engine failure, we will only know more after an investigation has been carried out. In a statement, the carrier said.

There's also video out there that shows the fire as well, confirmed by the attached audio.
