HOPKINSVILLE, KY (WSMV) -

No, this was not an attempt of the "South Rising" again.

But a group of 13 from "up north" were held captive in an elevator atop the Jefferson Davis Monument, in Hopkinsville, KY, for just more than an hour Saturday morning.

Firefighters were able to reach the tourist group from Illinois, and all 13 were able to walk down the stairs safely, according to Lt. Micheal Martin, Fairview Volunteer Fire Department.

No one was hurt in the incident.
