President Clinton was hustled out of a hotel ballroom Friday after a fire alarm sounded as he delivered a speech. The alarm went off just after Clinton began his speech at the Marriott Wardman Park Hotel for the Malcolm Baldrige National Quality Awards, awarded for corporate innovation. A fire had broken out in the hotel's laundry room. Apparently unaware of the fire, Clinton tried to continue his remarks after joking about the noise.
