We have some information as to how the engine room fire started on the Carnival Triumph. According to a US Coast Guard investigation, fuel from a damaged ‘fuel oil return line’ – a fuel hose, I think that means – sprayed onto a hot surface and ignited. Here’s a link to a story about it on a news site.

As the story suggests, this is just the first (and possibly the easiest) thing to establish. Discovering how a comparatively small fire knocked out the power for the whole ship will be much more significant, but we may not find that out for some time, possibly months.
