A semiclassical model of semiconductor laser noise, based on the Green's function method, is used to derive analytical formulas for the amplitude and frequency noise spectra taking into account incoming vacuum fluctuations and noise due to internal loss. This formalism also takes into account phenomena such as gain suppression as well as spatial hole burning (SHB). The amplitude noise squeezing is studied for Fabry-Perot structures pointing out the influence of the laser structural parameters. A complete agreement with already existing quantum mechanical models is found. However, extension of the model to SHB induces limitations in the squeezing performances, which are very important for more complex structures as will be pointed out in detail, in Part II
