A United Airlines flight with 331 people on board experienced an engine failure over a suburb of Boulder, Colo. On Saturday afternoon, dumping debris in three neighborhoods before landing safely in Denver, have the authorities announced.

No injuries were reported, officials said.

The flight, # 328, took off from Denver International Airport at 12:15 p.m. local time, airport spokesman Alex Renteria said.

The FAA said in a press release that the aircraft, a Boeing 777-200, suffered a right engine failure shortly after takeoff and that he was aware of reports of debris near the aircraft’s flight path.

The flight was heading from Denver to Daniel K. Inouye International Airport in Honolulu when the episode occurred.

David Gonzalez, a press representative for United, said the flight had 321 passengers and 10 crew on board. The flight was greeted by emergency responders as a precaution upon its return to Denver.

He said all passengers and crew left the plane and were taken to an airport terminal. We are currently working to get our customers on a new flight to Honolulu in the next few hours, he said.

Police in Broomfield, Colo., About 15 miles southeast of Boulder, said unspecified pieces of the plane fell in three neighborhoods around 1:08 p.m. local time.

A video on twitter showed an engine that was on fire and parts of its crankcase were missing.

Rebecca Schulte, a resident, said she saw two rooms that fell a few houses away from her home. She describes hearing a slight noise which she compared to an empty dump truck passing over a pothole, then heard sirens.

When she investigated further, she said, she found a large metal ring that landed on the steps of a nearby house, hitting the handrail.

How the house failed is beyond me, she said. She said the metal ring was about 10 feet in diameter.

In one video on twitter, passengers can be heard clapping as the plane lands safely.

The plane was a different model from the Boeing 737 Max, which was grounded in March 2019 after two fatal crashes.
