The crew declared an emergency and reported to the controller that they wanted to land on runway 36R, which was being used for takeoffs.
The controller directed an Airbus A319 to taxy off the runway before the ATR was able to perform the emergency landing.
The engine failure was caused by a rupture of one of the turbine blades of the nr. 2 turbine. The vibrations as a result of this caused the rupture of a lubrication pipe. An oil fire then occurred.
