Hotel guests told broadcaster NTV that they could smell something strange and had eye irritations before emergency services arrived to evacuate the building.

More than 100 people total including dozens of hotel visitors were evacuated and many were treated for respiratory problems.

The gas was initially unknown. Residents have been advised to keep doors and windows closed.
