Liners have a high center of gravity which made this happening more likely and The Roger Blough being a bulk freighter still had about 60% of her load capacity left if the pumps were not able to be used.

Remember that it's not just about putting out the fire but cooling down all those tons of hot steel too so whatever is burning won't re-ignite.
