LEXINGTON, Ky – A few Kentucky cops went viral for mourning the loss of truckload of doughnuts.

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

And while the driver was able to escape before crews arrived and flames engulfed the truck, the doughnuts didn't make it, Lexington police told 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 know what else to say."
