LISBON, Portugal — A large cargo ship was drifting near the mid-Atlantic islands of the Azores on Thursday after its 22 crew members were evacuated due to a fire on board, the Portuguese Navy said.

Shipping in the area was warned that the 200-meter-long (650-foot-long) Felicity Ace, carrying a cargo of vehicles, was adrift, said Portuguese Navy spokesman Cmdr. said José Sousa Luís.
