November 17, 2013 1:10 AM

STOCKHOLM (AP) — Norway’s rescue service says a cargo ship with 32 people aboard is on fire in the North Sea and an attempt to evacuate it has been called off because of stormy weather.

Rescue spokesman John Sjursoe says 20 crew and 12 military personnel aboard the Britannia Seaways are fighting the fire, which started in a container.

Sjursoe says no one is injured and the fire did not appear to be spreading early today as the vessel headed toward Floroe on the Norwegian coast, escorted by rescue ships and helicopters.
