The Golden Ray cargo ship ran into trouble when it listed heavily in St Simons Sound.
There were 23 crew members and one pilot on board, the coast guard said.
All but four crew members have been safely evacuated from the ship, a 656ft vehicle carrier.
The coast guard said it was notified by an emergency call at about 2am local time of a capsized vessel in the sound.
The cause is under investigation.
The Port of Brunswick has established an emergency safety zone in St Simons Sound.
Vessels are not authorised within half a mile of the Golden Ray, which is lying on its side and is on fire.
