Adele visits London firefighters after tower block blaze

A woman was spotted snapping a selfie in front of the smoldering Grenfell Tower

High Peak Borough Council has reassured housing tenant residents after the Grenfell Tower fire in London which has killed 79 people.

On Monday (June 19), firefighter Rob Petty from the local Chelsea Fire Station shared photos of Adele's visit on Facebook.

Eyewitness Tom Maughan told the Press Association: "She was so nice".

ANDIUM Homes, architects and the Jersey Fire and Rescue Service are reviewing building controls and fire safety procedures in the wake of the Grenfell Tower blaze in London. "She was going around talking to people", said witness Tom Maughan. Looks like she keeps her sense of humor in the midst of tragedy, too. It was about 1am, she came with her husband.

The "Hello" singer showed up with snacks for the firefighters who tackled the tragic Grenfell Tower blaze last week. "She wasn't hiding her face".


Simon Cowell is releasing a charity single to raise money for those affected by the disaster.

"The mayor, the mayoress and I visited Barnehurst fire station because we wanted to personally thank the firefighters who responded to the fire on behalf of the local community". The email also suggested part of the reason why so many are still unidentified is because residents had been subletting their flats, "this is why the death toll is unknown".

"She just turned up at the station and knocked on the window and said she has some cakes for us", he said, adding that "everyone was so shocked" to see her.

Station manager Ben King also dished on her visit to the BBC where he revealed that the star didn't let anyone know she's be stopping by and even brought cake during her visit.

King also said that the department has had "so much support for the local community and we can not thank everyone enough".
