The Canadian coast guard has evacuated 16 people from a burning container ship that is expelling toxic gas off Canada’s Pacific coast, but there is “no safety risk” to those on shore, authorities said Sunday.

“The ship is on fire and expelling toxic gas,” the Canadian coast guard said in a navigational warning on its website.
