Well, to be honest, after I saw that there was no commotion at all in the cabin, I did lean across the aisle and quietly ask the elderly man there to look out his window and see if his engines were okay because mine were on fire. I was a 19 yr-old smart aleck (as opposed to the much older smart aleck I am now.) He started gasping and grabbed his chest. I thought "OMG! I've caused a heart attack!" That scared me more than the fire. Now it just seems funny. Fortunately, he was okay.Good on you for not causing a plane wide panic.
I can just imagine a Karen going, "Fire! FiiiiiRRRRREEEEE! Get out of the way! Open the door! FIRE!!!!"
