The firefighters at the Chelsea Fire Station in London were met with a great surprise when Adele stopped by to hang out. And she brought cake!

The 29-year-old stopped by Monday to thank the firefighters for their courageous efforts following the horrific fire in Grenfell Tower last week that left at least 17 people dead and dozens more in critical condition.

Photos of Adele’s visit were posted by the London Fire Brigade’s Twitter on Tuesday. They said they were “humbled” by everyone’s support and that they shared a cup of tea with singer.

Firefighter Rob Petty also shared the images of the visit on his Facebook page, also noting that they had tea and “a cuddle” with Adele.

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.”

Adele’s impromptu visit to the station comes after she visited the Grenfell Tower on Thursday, not even 24 hours after the devastation. During that visit, the singer was asking if anyone needed help and went “around and hugging everyone she could to comfort them.”
