Three firefighters were taken to hospital with heat exhaustion after a fierce fire engulfed a building south-west of Adelaide last night.

A former carer support building caught alight in Glandore quickly engulfing the building and surrounding trees.

"It was just soul-breaking to see this place being gutted as it was," the building's owner, Davod Carver, said.

Neighbours called emergency services at 7:30pm yesterday with emergency crews rushing to the scene. Poor water pressure made firefighters' battle harder.

Traffic was brought to a standstill while nearby residents were urged to stay inside.

"It was amazing how much smoke there was ... it covered the whole oval here and the whole area," neighbour Angus Hyde said.

"The intensity of the fire was significant, and the water supply was inadequate", Commander of the South Australian Metropolitan Fire Service Wyane Trezise said.

Carer support staff are now working to find a temporary office and say they'll be back open on Monday.

Investigators are unsure how the blaze started.
