After reportedly showing up last week to comfort victims at the scene of London’s Grenfell Tower fire, singer Adele has apparently struck again, with U.K. firefighters sharing photos and accounts of her impromptu visit to a local firehouse on Monday.
It all started when a random woman in sunglasses knocked on a window of the Chelsea fire station. She said that she had a cake and wanted to thank the firemen for their brave efforts battling the Grenfell blaze, according to station manager Ben King.
“She just turned up at the station and knocked on the window and said she has some cakes for us,” King told the Independent. “So we opened the door to her and then she took her sunglasses off and said, ‘Hi, I’m Adele.’ Everyone was so shocked.”
He continued, “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.”

The London Fire Brigade took to Twitter on Tuesday to share photos of the firefighters’ joyful encounter with the pop superstar and expressed gratitude to the public for the support that has come rushing in over the past week.
“Adele enjoyed a cup of tea with Chelsea firefighters yesterday and thanked them for their work,” the tweet read. “We are so humbled by everyone’s support.”
As Faithwire previously reported, the visit follows Adele’s purported trek to the scene of the fire last week, where the Grammy winner reportedly hugged victims and individuals assembled nearby and got emotional, wiping tears away from her eyes.
Police say that there are currently 79 people who are either missing or presumed dead.
