The British singer showed up at Chelsea Fire Station Monday for an impromptu afternoon tea, where she thanked the firefighters for all their hard work.

"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 statement. “So we opened the door to her and then she took her sunglasses off and said, ‘Hi, I’m Adele.' Everyone was so shocked."

In addition to taking photos with the firemen and enjoying a cup of tea, King said Adele joined the firefighters in a moment of silence for the 79 confirmed dead or missing after last week's devastating blaze.

More than 200 firefighters worked for hours to put out the inferno.
