Two teenagers have been arrested and will be charged with arson after a large fire destroyed part of a supermarket in Adelaide yesterday.

Shoppers and staff were forced to flee when a ball of flames erupted in the aisles of Woolworths in the Adelaide Hills town of Stirling.

Almost 100 firefighters tackled the blaze, which broke out at 2pm in Stirling Village Shopping Centre.

A massive fire has all but gutted a busy supermarket in South Australia.

The smoke could be seen by motorists on the South Eastern Freeway.

Multiple firefighters attacked the fierce blaze from the ground, from the roof and from above.

Some roads in the area are closed and some power has been cut off.

The two 14-year-old boys were granted bail and will appear at Mount Barker Youth Court at a later date.

Fire Cause Investigators will attend the scene today once it is safe to examine the scene.
