A United Airlines plane to Honolulu suffered an engine failure shortly after taking off from Denver on Saturday, the Federal Aviation Administration said.

The plane returned to Denver, where it landed safely. Images shared on social media showed what appeared to be part of the engine nacelle outside a house.

“The FAA is aware of reports of debris near the aircraft’s flight path,” the agency said in a statement.

The National Transportation Safety Board and the FAA are investigating the incident, the FAA said.

United Flight 328 had 231 passengers and 10 crew members on board.

“No injuries have been reported on board and we will provide more information as it becomes available,” United said in a statement.

Boeing said it had received reports of the incident.
