Cops 'mourn' donuts lost in Krispy Kreme truck fire

LEXINGTON, Ken. (CNN) - The doughnut-loving cop cliché has been around for years... and police officers humorously reinforced that stereotype in Kentucky recently.

It happened after a Krispy Kreme doughnut truck caught fire in Lexington on New Year's eve.

No one was injured but the fire definitely put the krisp in Krispy Kreme - toasting the precious cargo past the point of being edible.

Lexington police took to social media -- posting funny photos of officers pretending to mourn the loss of doughnuts.

The posts went viral, inspiring responses from police departments across the nation offering tongue-in-cheek condolences.
