Adele surprised members of the London Fire Brigade with an in-person thank you for their heroic efforts in last week’s deadly Grenfell Tower blaze.
The Grammy-winning singer paid a visit to the Chelsea Fire Station in the wake of the tragedy that claimed at least 79 lives last week.

“Not everyday the wonderfully grounded and caring Adele pops into Chelsea Firestation for a cup of tea and a cuddle,” first responder Rob Petty wrote on Facebook, sharing photos of the 29 year-old singer with the firefighters.
Adele’s visit was not only unannounced, the singer was not even recognized by the firefighters at first.
“She just turned up at the station and knocked on the window and said she has some cakes for us,” Station Manager Ben King said in a London Fire Brigade press release.
“So we opened the door to her and then she took her sunglasses off and said: ‘Hi, I’m Adele’. Everyone was so shocked,” King said.

Adele shared the cakes and some tea with the members of the station.
“She came in, came up to the mess and had a cup of tea with the watch and then she joined us for the minute’s silence,” King continued, referring to a memorial moment in honor of the victims.
After all the heartache and tragedy what a lovely way for Adele to thank these very brave firefighters ??? pic.twitter.com/Qp7aNN80sG
