The missing crew members -- all South Korean nationals -- have been confirmed to be in the ship's engine room, according to South Korea's Foreign Ministry.

But rescue efforts are at a standstill because a fire on the vessel endangered the safety of responders, authorities said. The 656-foot cargo ship remains on its side in the waterway, about 80 miles south of Savannah.

Rescue crews are searching for four crew members of a cargo ship that overturned in the early hours of Sunday morning off the coast of Brunswick, Ga Officials are still working to determine the cause of the incident, and say an emergency safety zone has been established in St. Simons Sound.

A call for help

The first dispatches from the boat came at around 2 a.m. Sunday morning, according to US Coast Guard Lt. j.g. Phillip VanderWeit.

South Korea's Foreign Ministry said the boat began "listing heavily," about 80 degrees, to the port side before overturning.

VanderWeit told CNN help arrived nearly two hours after the first calls came through.

Twenty members of the crew were rescued by the US Coast Guard around 4 and 5 a.m., VanderWeit said.

Those rescued were exiting via various parts of the vessel, which posed a challenge in getting them off the ship.

Some crew members were hoisted onto helicopters while others were lowered, in some cases by fire hoses, onto boats, according to VanderWeit.

Four crew members weren't able to be rescued as fires broke out on the ship that prevented rescuers from continuing their response, Capt. John Reed, commander of the Coast Guard Sector Charleston, said at a news conference.

Officials are waiting for the ship to stabilize before attempting any more rescues, Reed said, but aren't sure if the fire is out.

"We are unable to determine specifically without going inside whether the fire has been completely extinguished," he said.

Although rescue efforts have stalled, the Coast Guard remains on scene next to the boat as they try to stabilize the vessel.

VanderWeit said the Coast Guard continues to search around the vessel. But the "suspended" search means that they had to get off the vessel because of fires and instability.

Rescued crew members given food and clothing

Those who were rescued were offered assistance by the International Seafarers' Center in Brunswick, Georgia, according to the center's director Vicki West.

West told CNN via email that her organization provided food and clothing to between 18 and 20 crew members from the overturned cargo ship who were Filipino and South Korean.

She said the rescued crew members were in good condition.

Volunteers from her organization served them lunch donated by Grandy's, a local restaurant in Brunswick, and facilitated those that wanted to attend Mass at St. Francis Xavier Catholic Church.

Bags with hygiene items, socks, toothpaste, and games, some of which were donated to the center by the community, were also given to the crew members as they recovered from their harrowing night.

They also offered bibles and promise books to any of the crew members who might want them and they each took one, West said.

The investigation

Officials are still trying to determine what caused the boat to overturn.

Two investigators from the National Transportation Safety Board are expected to arrive on the scene Monday, according to NTSB spokesman Keith Holloway.
