Police in Kentucky found some humor after an empty doughnut truck caught fire.

While the fire was soon extinguished, nobody seemed to be more heartbroken than Lexington's boys in blue. Lexington police shared images of saddened police officers standing in front of the scorched vehicle on their social media accounts. The post was accompanied by the comment, "No words".

"No words", the department tweeted on New Year's Eve, along with the photos.

Police departments from across the country chimed in to offer their condolences, including several police departments from Ohio.

With that, the officers chose to express their sadness in a joking tweet, sharing photos of themselves looking disappointed in front of the burned truck.

"We feel your loss".

As of Tuesday night, the post had been retweeted more than 16,000 times. We may call a Donut a Gravy Ring here in Northern Ireland but we can still understand your pain.

Winter storm expected to bring snow, poor travel conditions
A large winter storm coming on the heels of Christmas is expected to bring snow to Nebraska, the Dakotas and Minnesota this week. Heavy rain and strong winds will combine to make travel hard by air or road Friday in the parts of the East.
