(FOX NEWS) -- Officers in Kentucky went viral on New Year's Eve after mourning the loss of a 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.

While the driver was able to safely escape before fire crews arrived and flames engulfed the truck, the doughnuts didn't make it.

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

"No words," the officers wrote.

Across the nation, from Colorado to Chicago, officers 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 officer sent 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.”

Others noted that the doughnuts were really "krispy" after the box truck fire.

The cause of the fire remains under investigation.
