A “faulty fridge” is thought to be the cause of last week’s London high-rise fire that claimed at least 79 lives. But firefighters had cause to savor a surprise visit this week.
Adele came to Chelsea Fire Station to say thanks, bringing cake and photo opportunities.
“The 29-year-old stopped by Monday to thank the firefighters for their courageous efforts following the horrific fire in Grenfell Tower,” said Huffington Post.
Station manager Ben King told The Independent that “she just turned up at the station and knocked on the window and said she has some cakes for us.”
“So we opened the door to her and then she took her sunglasses off and said: ‘Hi, I’m Adele.’”
King also said that the department has had “so much support for the local community and we cannot thank everyone enough.”
The cheering-up visit wasn’t the singer’s first.
On Thursday, the day after the devastation, Adele visited Grenfell Tower and asked if anyone needed help.
She went “around … hugging everyone she could to comfort them,” HuffPost said.
