I think that if it was a straight failure then a continuation on a 4 engine aircraft is a distinct possibility. If it was severe damage, fire/flames reported (and in this case it was) then I would be landing at the nearest suitable airport regardless of how many engines you have. What if the fanblade seizes? I don't think you'd be able to continue for 12 hours......
