Boiler Room 6 was the foremost boiler room of the Titanic. Where the other boiler rooms had 5 boilers, BR6 only had 4 double-ended boilers. The boilers generated steam for the reciprocating engines. These boilers were connected to the 1st funnel.The forward coal bunker had a coal fire that weakened the bulkhead. The fire was put out on Sunday, April 14th, the day of the collision. This room was compromised when the ship hit the iceberg and started flooding at once.
