30-foot long black marks were identified in the ship's hull believed to be caused by massive on-board coal fire that blazed its internals even bore Titanic departed on its maiden voyage. A likely combination of fire, ice and everything in between doomed the famous passenger liner.

According to journalist Senan Molony, they are examining the area of the hull for any signs of fragility. “We are looking at the exact area where the iceberg stuck, and we appear to have a weakness or damage to the hull in that specific place, before she even left Belfast,”
