Following the intense, tragic fire at Grenfell Tower in London, British singer Adele was spotted in the Notting Hill neighborhood. According to People Magazine, Adele and her husband, Simon Konecki, were photographed walking around, talking to people in the area and asking if anyone needed help. Witnesses posted about Adele on social media and shared photos of the superstar, who was doing what she could to give back in such a dire situation. Her presence, however, was very powerful and many people were so grateful to have her support.
The 24-story residential building caught fire sometime after midnight local time. Some reports indicate that someone’s refrigerator somehow exploded, causing a massive fire to break out. The blaze ripped through the building, floor after floor, engulfing almost every inch. Several photos supplied by the media show bright orange flames bursting out the sides of the building.
The fire was so bad, people were throwing children out the windows and many were seen trying to jump to safety, taking their chances with gravity. While some children were reportedly caught by strangers down below, it is presumed that others didn’t survive the fall. As for adults that jumped, it’s unclear whether any are still alive to talk about their decisions.
Firefighters had some success getting the inferno to calm down, but shortly after it appeared to have stopped completely, it started up again.
Those who saw Adele said that she was very emotional. The 29-year-old Grammy winner looked very concerned as she walked around the outskirts of the charred building. It is unknown how many people Adele and Simon spoke to or what kind of help they offered.
