GUESTS LEAVE SAFELY AS HOTEL TAKES FIRE.

Louisville, Ky., Dec. 23. (AP) -- Prompt action by firemen, calmness of guests and presence of proper fire escapes were given credit for the fact that no one was injured when fire broke out here yesterday in the Kentucky hotel.
All of the 330 guests registered in the hotel who were in the building at the time, were removed to safety by firemen and hotel employes, who had been given fire drills by the management.
One woman, MRS. BONNIE CILLIAN, Charlestown, Ind., was taken from the ninth floor down a fire ladder.
Damage estimated at $10,000, was confined to that floor. Cause of the fire has not been determined.
