Sure they will obviously be looked at along with much else but unlike some accidents such as the Medellin one recently their is no obvious cause which justifies speculation. There are 1001 potential causes of an engine fire from bird strike through compressor failure, fuel leak etc etc. Assuming the engine fire was causal not consequential. Hopefully enough will remain to allow the cause to be accurately determined.
