Conspiracy theorists. Pah. If there were coal fires in the coal storage areas ... how did they conceal all the smoke? It wouldn't have exited through the stacks. It would have choked everyone on the lower decks. According to diagrams, the 1st class staterooms were right above the bow coal bunkers. All the wooden furniture in the rooms would have started crisping from the heat.

This is akin to explosives in the WTC. "But the windows blew out!" Where did all the air inside the building go as the floors pancaked, do you think? Try flattening a balloon between your hands. It'll come to you.
