MOSCOW (CNN)-- Police say a powerful explosion inside the service elevator of the Intourist Hotel on Monday injured eleven people.

The blast occurred just before 3:00 p.m. local time (7:00 a.m. ET), on a floor occupied by business offices, breaking some glass. Police were investigating if a particular office may have been the target. Authorities tell CNN there was no fire.

Police searched for a suspicious car, a Lada, which sped away from the hotel with four men inside.

The Intourist Hotel is located directly across from Red Square. It caters to traveling businessmen and tourists.
