Taylor Swift put out a small fire in her New York City home with help from her friend and Eras Tour opener Gracie Abrams, her cat Benjamin Button, and a fire extinguisher.

In a video shared to X (formerly Twitter) on Friday, June 21, by Abrams, 24, Swift scrambles to use her fire extinguisher to put out a flaming object on her kitchen countertop as Benjamin Button looks on in confusion.

"I think we're gonna die," Swift can be heard joking in the video as she readies the extinguisher.

"No, we're not gonna die," Abrams laughs in response.

Swift, 34, struggles to squeeze the operating lever but eventually gets the fire extinguisher to put out the blaze.

"Now my purses are ruined," Swift jokes while the pair laughs. "And my shoes. And the whole room, I think."

As both women giggle from the situation's absurdity, the "The Black Dog" singer's cat, Benjamin Button, walks into the room to see what's happening. He stands in the doorway, looking bewildered before Abrams ends the video.

Another video in Abrams' post shows the pair working on their collaboration for "Us," off Abrams' album The Secret of Usset to be released June 21. In the short clip, the 24-year-old sits at a piano, and Swift paces around in the background as they write the lyrics to their new song.

In an interview with Billboard published earlier this week, the "I miss you, I'm sorry" singer recalled hanging out at Swift's New York City apartment "well past 6 a.m." long after they finished the song, enjoying dinner and drinks. The fire in the kitchen broke out after a candle fell over, she said.

"She was such a legend," Abrams said of Swift. "I don't know how at this hour or in our state she knew what to do. We both had an insane cough from the fire extinguisher fumes for weeks."

Swift's ragdoll cat Benjaminone of her three cats, alongside her Scottish Folds Meredith Grey and Olivia Benson—has appeared in the singer's projects over the years.
