In reply to iomapaseo:

I see no signs of shrapnel damage. As some said much earlier in this thread it doesn't look like an uncontained disk rotor. Nor do I see signs of extreme pressure release (some call this an explosion). Instead the pictures of the externals of the engine pod and wing go hand in hand with a persistent ground pool fire.
If you watch the video, the first thing the fire appliances do is direct their jets on to the ground beneath the wing.
