Just after 6.30am on Sunday, police and emergency services responded to reports of a fire at the Comfort Hotel Adelaide Meridien in Melbourne Street.

The intense fire within the three-level complex saw fighters quickly rescue over 15 people using ladders and aerial appliances.

More than 100 terrified guests desperately tried to escape the building and seven people were taken to hospital for treatment, including the three men aged 43, 44 and 54, who were in a critical condition.

The fire has since been determined to have started as a result of recharging batteries.
