“Fourteen persons were rescued by police and firemen during a fast burning fire in the 5-story Travelers Hotel, 209 Ninth Ave. this morning. Dense smoke and wailing sirens drew thousands of ferry commuters to the scene. Ferdinand Segara, 38, (above) who walks with two canes, Mrs. Mary Pappas and her daughter, Dixie, 5, were carried down extension ladders. He saved only his spare pair of shoes. Fire burned out three lower floors.”
