The captain shut the right hand engine down, and although no fire warning had activated in the cockpit, discharged the fire suppression system. After the aircraft had come to a stop on the runway, the captain shut the left hand engine down, too, emergency services responded and inspected the #2 engine finding no evidence of fire. The passengers disembarked onto the runway and were taken to the terminal. The aircraft was subsequently towed to the apron. The investigation is ongoing.
