LEXINGTON, Ky. – A few Kentucky cops are mourning the loss of … drum roll please … a truckload of doughnuts. And their suffering has gone viral.

The driver of a Krispy Kreme doughnut truck noticed his vehicle was smoking on New Year’s Eve, so he called 911.

Although the driver was able to safely escape before fire crews arrived and flames engulfed the truck, the doughnuts didn’t make it, reported Fox News.

The Lexington Police Department posted a few photos online depicting the heartbroken officers with their heads cast down.

“No words,” the officers wrote, and their colleagues from across the nation – from Colorado to Chicago – were quick to respond with messages of support.

“We feel your loss,” the University of Kentucky Police Department wrote. “We donut what else to say.”

A North Carolina police officer added his condolences.

“In this line of work, some things can’t be unseen,” he wrote. “My thoughts are with @lexkypolice officers at this time of tragedy.”

Other commenters online noted the doughnuts were really “krispy” after the box truck fire.

There is no doubt, the humorous comments will continue. Do you have one?

The investigation into the fire is ongoing as the cause is unknown. Maybe the doughnuts were simply too hot of a commodity?
